    Chickenlady, you were right!!!

    My pullets are only 19 weeks old, and I just found, to my utter astonishment, TWO small pale brown, smoothe, beautifully shaped eggs. That means she laid yesterday also.

    I don't even have them on layer food yet, nor calcium and no nestboxes in yet!!

    Maybe my birds aren't as sick as this worry-wart thinks they are.

    Just wanted to pass on the good news. And just in time for the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi tomorrow.

    Blessed be God for His small wonders.
