    We have 3 girls in a little coop. Hoping to get our first eggs soon as they are 19 & 20 weeks old.

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! Waiting for those first eggs sure can seem to take an age :pop When you do find those little treasures it's so exciting!! I still get giddy when I find one from a new layer. You would think I had never seen an egg before!!

    Good luck with those eggs. Enjoy BYC and all the chicken chat :frow

    Have a little more time to post... Our three girls are Golden laced Wynadotte, a polish top hat and a red star. they are good girls. :) Our coop is kind of small but we let them out whenever we can so they seem pretty happy. :)

    Your red star (a sex link girl) will give you nice big brown eggs once she starts. If I remember correctly, our 3 were about 20-22 weeks old when they first laid.

    Hope you see that first egg soon!
