I had a post three or four days ago asking about my 18 week old girls squatting, and was assured that they were getting ready to lay....and as always you guys ere right! Got our first egg three days ago, out in the yard in the dirt, and the last two days she has figured it out and the eggs have been in the nest box!!!!! One perfect little brown egg at about the same time each day! I just bought 100 pounds of pullet grower, not expecting any eggs this soon, is it ok for them to finish it off, or should I switch to laying crumbles? Only one of the 22 is laying, but most of the other girls are squatting also.
