At what approx age do scovies lay their first egg? I have a male and female, approx 4 months old. Didn't figure the female would lay her first egg until next spring (don't know why I think that, just do). Anyways, I was in their pen today, which the chickens do go into btw, and there was a huge egg in there. Looks like a torpedo actually. So did one of my older hens figure that was a good hiding place to lay, or has Daisy duck layed her first egg? Donald seems interested in mating (I think, he's always chasing her around), so does that mean she's of age already? Thanks!
