    My 14 week old chicken sophia Laid an egg today it was shocking because i didnt think she was old enough.. its tiny compared to my rhode island reds who started laying 2 weeks ago and there laying everyday is that normal for them too i already have 18 eggs..

    problem is i have 4 10 weekers learning to crow all in the same pen because i thought we had some time.she is a non frizzler she frizzled as a baby and has feathered feet and everyone here told me she was a rooster but she popped an egg out today.. she is the only one out there with a vent that could possibly pass an egg...my other babies are 10 weeks old..
    isnt this early for her??

    A fertile egg placed in a fridge will not develop into a chick. The egg is safe to eat.

    Cute frizzle!

    That is a little early but roll with it. Mines first eggs were very small too. They will slowly start to get bigger. I remember the commotion mine made the first full sized egg they laid.
