    Quote:OOH, that IS exciting! I have a feeling it will be a while for all of mine as one is a Jersey Giant. I have heard she can take a while. The younger girls won't lay until November. This egg gave me the motivation to finish the WIR plans and rake the whole chicken yard.

    Maude is just 18-19 weeks according to ours and the breeders calculations. So, I guess she's a bit early.

    sooooo

    Maude is a precocious chicken to display early laying.

    Just like you--- the eggs are motivators to me. I'm glad that since I'm new to chickens I got a hen and point of lay pullets...because it is so rewarding to get the eggs from them.


    Chickens are amazing. You will have eggs coming in while you wait for your others to mature. Every day is an adventure.
