    We got our first egg from one of our pullets yesterday! Today, I've been checking the box and nothing. I looked around the coop and run too. Do they start laying everyday right at first or maybe every other day for a while? Just don't know what to expect. We have 8 new hampshire pullets.

    Thank you!

    It takes a little while for pullets to get their egg works up and going consistently sometimes. That said, not all chickens lay every day. Even the best layers take a day off [​IMG] Aren't first eggs fun?!
