Bought our Red Jungle Fowl Jan 7th at an auction, guy said they should start laying in about three weeks (old enough). It has been so cold, hard to keep water; they have had to adjust to their new home. I figured at least March before I see any eggs. Last night my son took his turn going to the barn, and he comes back with our first egg! We have been without chickens for about two years; I forgot how exciting that first egg can be.
