    I found these little egg starts inside my 14 week old Freedom rangers, at first I wasn't sure what they were then I squished one and YOLK came out! I assume we would have had some eggs soon but wondering isn't it a little early? Is this normal? How long until I WOULD have had my first egg?

    Most of my chickens started laying at around 19 weeks, so I would only assume that some yolks would be starting to develop a few weeks prior to that. [​IMG] Hope that helped a little!
