How early typically, do rocks begin to lay? Has anyone ever had one go broody on their first egg?? The reason I ask is this, I've got 2 who do not wish to come out of the coop today while the other 7 are happily enjoying the cooling of the day. They are alert, they are just sitting in the coop in the straw together. Earlier the white rock mix was sitting sepertely but now it is way in the back with the barred rock. Another funny thing is this, i posted pics last week wondering how many of each gender did everyone think i had. Almost unanimously the vote was all roosters. I purchased them at the beginning of April so they are still pretty young, coming up on 3 months. there is no panting or lethargy or anything to indicate illness, just hangin out in the coop together. These 2 are also the ones that I personally thought were female but i had only 1 other person agree with me. So.....could it be that I was right and these 2 are going broody on their first lay or do i have a pair of lazy day chickens on my hands?
