    My Iowa Blue is my youngest (20wks) and smallest chicken and she gave me my 1st egg on Sat and a 2nd egg this morning.
    She was very loud about having them. On Sat she made 3 nest with 3 announcements. Today she did alot of whining before laying.

    I am impressed, that is good for any pullet, especially one of the rarer breeds.

    DLV58, Where did you obtain your Iowa Blue pullet from? If a feed store or somewhere similar, do you know the source their birds? Have you checked out the Iowa Blue Chicken Club? We've got lots of information there and a great group of breeders!
