Okay, so let me just start off by saying that I am soooo excited to be apart of the BYC. I bought my first flock of hens the last week of February & they were only a couple days old. I had so many questions, & little do y'all know, but you helped answer all of them! & i Wasn't even a member yet! So thankful for y'all. For real. But now I have a question that I can seem to find the answer to. So the last week of February me & my Boyfriend were walking through tractor supply & i Stopped to watch the chicks. I saw this little runt that was getting pushed around. Broke my heart. So what does any sane person do? Buy 6 chickens just to rescue the runt. So here I am trying to figure out everything I can about these animals (all the credit goes to you folks) & i Now have 5 very healthy and gorgeous chickens. (Lost one to a coon Very sad day) well, getting the chicks with no research I bought the bantams. Ended up with 5 roosters & 1 hen. About a month ago (end of June) I went to feed & water My chickens & i Noticed the roosters would not leave my hen alone. So I made the decision to separate them. Well luck have it, 4 days ago, July 10th, I got my very first egg!!! (Is it weird that she's laying so early? Everything. I've read says it takes like 18 weeks & she's only 16 weeks) but anyways, how long does it take for her to not lay fertile eggs anymore? I guess a better way of putting it, How long does it take (in a hens anatomy) to produce her first egg? Since I separated them about two weeks ago, do you think her eggs are fertile? Or there's no way they're fertile? Also, I am getting one EVERY day for the last 4 days. I thought they only lay one like every couple of days? I'm still new to this, & let Me tell you, around here I'm known as the crazy chicken lady. Almost shed a tear when I opened the box to clean it & found My Henny's first egg. I love my chickens & i Just want to make sure I'm taking the best care of them. Also, I'm taking the eggs out of the box & putting them straight in the fridge. Is that the right thing to do? As you can see I have a lot of questions. Any answers are greatly appreciated!! Thank you in advance!!
