    I see I am not the only one who is anxious to collect their first egg. My 5 girls will be 20 weeks old this coming Saturday (Nov. 10, 2018.) I started out with a variety pack of six 7 week old laying hens. Unfortunately, my Ameracuana ended up to be a Jean Paul and not a Jenny so had to return. Neighbours have been patient with my barking dog - but crowing would be just too much to handle.
