Hello, Guess what everybody! One of our ladies gave us our first time EVER egg yesterday! We found ANOTHER egg this morning when we checked on our girls. We are brand new chicken owners since late March and could not be more thrilled! I do have a few questions though, if that is ok? We got our chicks on March 25th, 2016. We were told then that they were already almost a week old. Are my girls laying early? I do not think they are all the same age, because some are bigger and more developed and others are smaller and don't even have their red comb yet. Do my girls need to be on layer food now, even though some are younger and not laying yet? We think only one lady possibly two are laying right now. What things should I look for now that some of my ladies are laying? Do they need any other supplements? Is it normal for them to pick at one another's waddles or combs? The two little brown eggs are the eggs I was talking about. The white ones are normal store bought. I wanted a size reference.
Thank you so much and have a wonderful day, Sarah*
