    Well, it's true- my 'Big Bird' finally layed her first egg- that's who I'm asuming has layed the past three little roundies I found in the coop.

    I've only hatched one of them, the first one I found- and it had two yolks :eek:

    Yay for Big Bird! [​IMG]

    It depends on the breed and the time of year when the onset of lay begins. 20 weeks is normal, however peeps born late in the summer might not lay til spring depending on the breed.
