One of my 23 girls...a Barred Rock layed her first egg Saturday. How long will it take for her to get into a normal laying cycle? I was so excited all day thinking I would get another egg today. But nope...nothing. I found myself grabbing up most of the girls and feeling their bellies trying to see if I could feel an egg in there somewhere. I've got to think that since one has layed an egg then the other 22 girls are not to far behind. They'll be 19 weeks old tomorrow.
