    I found a fart egg this morning and wasn't expecting anything because the girls are all 16 wks old today. I suspect it was one of the BSL's because the combs/wattles are more developed and red? Anyhoo, is this just a fluke at such a young age or should I expect that this is the beginning of production? It's awfully cute![​IMG]

    16 weeks is possible. My EEs started laying at 17.5 weeks.
