My girls will be 17 weeks on Monday and the wait is almost unbearable. To keep my mind off of it I'd like to hear from folks-- what is the earliest egg you've ever gotten from each breed you have? I'd be especially interested in hearing from anyone who has one of the same breeds that I do (see my signature for the types). Also, does anyone have a chart that shows when each breed begins laying? Not one that says "early layer" mind you, but one that specifies at how many weeks each breed could begin laying. Maybe I'll compile just such a chart from the responses. Ok, I think that wasted five minutes. Time to go check for eggs again.
