So how close am I to getting my 1st egg? I've never had chickens before and I've read 16 weeks and 20+ weeks...but what is the normal for WLs? I didn't put her on layer feed yet because I have other chicks in the coop with her that are much younger - three 11 week olds and soon I'll have eight 4 week olds that will have access to her feed as well. I figured I would supplement her start/grower feed with oyster shell, but how do I give just her oyster shell? It's so crazy that I am terrified to let her free range for fear something will happen to her after getting her this far - I just want one egg from her! HAHA!
