    Can you eat eggs from a 8 week old chicken. And why did one give me two eggs a once but the shells were like plastic film?

    An 8 week old chicken is not mature enough to lay eggs.

    I'd like to see a picture too. Did you raise them from chicks?

    Quote:Agreed. I think the OP must have gotten some numbers mixed up. Perhaps 8 months? [​IMG]

    I do have a pic of the first one but do not know how to put it up here. I bought them from a local farmer a week ago Sunday. They do not all have their tail feathers yet

    Sorry, didn't notice how new you were to the site. Welcome!!! The reason some are so curious is because an average chicken will be 20 weeks old before it lays its first egg.

    Interesting, I recently joined and was able to post pics straight away so I presume they have listed that restriction. You just need to upload them and then copy and paste the HTML code (from the box that say's 'image' under the pic) on to your listing. This is something we all want to see!!
