    I got my first egg from my red star.[​IMG] She is one day shy of 17 weeks. Whe laid it in the shavings in the coop rather in the nest box. Ihope she learns what the nest is for.

    I got my first egg song today, but no egg. How from the time they start singing until they start laying? The song sounded just like the recordings others have posted.
