Mine are right at six months old and I was wondering if I'd see any eggs this year since the days are getting shorter. I did start letting them roam our (almost) two acres a month or so back and they love it. Maybe yours will start in the next couple of weeks.
That's awesome!! I have two black JG hens, two roos that were supposed to also be JGs and one hen that may be a cross of the two breeds. That one is responsible for the first egg. I found another one this afternoon.
Today is the day for a lot of us, huh? One of my 21 week old pullets - a Rhode Island Red - finally laid her first egg today, too! She’s looked fully mature for three weeks now. Hopefully her hatch mates will follow suit soon.
