    In my limited experience, there's a week or two between first squat and first egg. Or at least the wait seemed interminable. Your mileage, of course, may vary.

    My barred rock has been laying for a week now and I just got her first squat this morning. None of my other chickens are laying. The oldest is 26 weeks. Makaila (my barred rock) is 24 weeks old.
