I just want to fast forward a little so I can get my first egg! My girls are only 15 weeks old but I am really excited for that first egg! I know I probly have to wait another month or two.

I have
3 Dominiques
3silver laced wyandottes
3 buff orpingtons
3 East eggers
3 Welsummers


I think my Dominiques will be first to lay. Whats your guess?

I am pretty sure my Easter eggers will be the last to lay because they are the ones I am most excited about. And thats just my luck.

Our 2 hens are about 4 months old and one has been laying but the other hasn't, we got them as one day old chickens and they're unrepeatable. Now the one that lays is brooding but not in their brooding place in the coop and I have to lirealyy pick her up of a night and carry her to the brooder to keep them warm and safe or she will stay in this one place day and night, the other hen is missing her being with her and she hasn't layed an egg at all yet.
I don't know what to do because now neither are laying, we have put a fake egg in the brooder hoping the one that stays in the spot all day will get used to sitting in the brooder where it's warm, so now we have both hens not laying and don't know what to do about the one sitting on nothing all day.
Any advice please?

I am not sure how to unbroody a hen because I don't have any eggs yet. But I watched this video the other day
. That might help.

Still waiting for my ISA browns to lay eggs. I think they are now 24 wks. Trying to break them of sleeping in the nesting boxes. Their combs and wattles are a pink. One is turning a little red. Hopefully soon.
