    I found a 13 week old pullet squatting for a 13 week old cockerel. She's not old enough to lay eggs is she?

    Sometimes when there is a roo present, pullets start squatting earlier. The eggs should still come out on normal time.

    The little fools will squat for an immature cockerel?

    Ok, thanks. I was just trying to figure out if I should be expecting some poor eggs.
