    I now have three out of six pullets laying, 20 weeks old.
    YAY! Go girls.
    They're still tiny eggs but one was a double yolker. Two tiny perfect orange yolks.
    Still waiting on the other three.

    ETA: OOPS. I just went to gather eggs and now have four pullets laying and one old biddy.
    I don't remember the last time I got 5 eggs in a day.
    HOORAY!

    Quote:I hope your pullets don't egg your house on Hallowe'en. LOL. Youngsters can play dirty tricks if you don't give them treats.
