Hello, i have three pullets about five months. One of the pullets just started squatting for me today when i lean over her or try to pick her up. Is this a sign that she'll be laying eggs soon? I thought they usually start laying at six months.
Oh I'm not ready for my babies to grow up.A lot of chickens usually lay earlier than 6 months depending on the breed, My australorp started laying eggs at 4 months. So yes, she should start laying soon, it's definitely exciting to walk in and find that first egg sitting in that nesting box!
