Yep my girls gave me two eggs today. They are 20 weeks old today. I am eggcited. Yesterday was my birthday, they tried I eggspect. I guess they produce as advertised by Ideal Poultry.

I apolagize now for the all caps subject line. Maybe we are allowed to on our first egg posting?

Thank You. I only got two eggs, one was cracked a little the other seems to be in good shape. I have 20 pullets/hens so I should be getting a dozen a day in short order huh?

Are they pullets now or hens?

Congrats!
Technically, they are still pullets. A hen being a female chicken one year of age or older.
I started calling mine hens when they started laying. They're my chickens and I'll call em any dang thing I wanna.

It is exciting and how in the world do they know?! I received my first egg Saturday (1 day before MY birthday) and the second egg on my actual birthday. Only one of my 22 week old hens is laying so far (I have 10 of them), but I have received one egg daily for the last 5 days.
