    We have six red sex links and that are almost 18 weeks old. One of them gave us a first, really nice, egg. The picture attached is next to a store bought extra large egg. We just opened up the nesting boxes three days ago a put wooden eggs in each nest. This first egg was right in the middle of one of the nest boxes. I really have very smart chickens.
