I had a young (21 weeks) chicken give me her first "squat" today!!!

I know that means she'll be laying soon! ("soon" being relative and with meaning only to her, of course!)

So I'd love to hear how long it was between YOUR chicken's first squat and first egg.

I have a Barred Rock and a Production Red that are the same age. The barred rock started squatting at about 17 weeks and the first egg was about a week later. The red has never done the squatting behavior, but laid her first egg the day before the Barred Rock laid her first egg.

Mine was about a week or less also. How exciting for you. Congratulations! As someone on here said to me "Warm up the frying pan"!
