This morning I heard my first egg song. My girls are almost 18 weeks old and I think it was my barred rock that was singing. How long until she starts laying? She is really red, has a nice comb and wattles but isnt squatting yet. I have a glw who also has a red comb and wattles but no squatting. I am really hoping for eggs soon. DH opened the nest boxes and put in the chips and a golf ball. What do you think? Am I hoping too early? I know it was definately the egg song I was hearing. Input please!!!
