I am getting sooo impatient for my first egg! I have 14 hens, different breeds so it's hard to expect them to lay at the same time. Anyways, they are 20 weeks old and I have a big black hen that I observed squatting and the rooster actually was trying to mate with her this morning. This is the first time I've seen this happen. I also observed her walking in and out of the coop this morning nervously. I have never seen her in a nesting box, though. Any ideas on when she will lay me my first egg? I've been anxious since she was 16 weeks old! I guess a watched pot never boils Lol! This is her three weeks ago. Comb and waddle are larger now.
