    I have 18 new brown leghorns and production reds that I got March 14. I found an egg in the coop yesterday. No way it could have been from these girls, must have been buried under the straw and missed from last flock.

    Mine started at 16 weeks, so maybe the age was off?

    Crack it open. If really rotten, not from this bunch.

    Well, Every day for a couple days go out into the coop and look for eggs. If you keep finding more then they are most likely laying. If not maybe it was from past flocks
