    Several of mine have been squaring since early this week. They are also very noisy. I'm really hoping to find one sooner than I was initially thinking. My ISA's turn 15 weeks Saturday.

    I'm desperately waiting for my first egg. I have 8 pullets hatched 2/17. These are the two I'm sure the first egg will come from since they are the only ones with developed combs [​IMG] [​IMG]

    They both developed their combs at around 17-18weeks. Hopefully that egg comes soon! Both of those pullets and a few others were practicing their egg song about a month ago but recently stopped.

    I have 21 hens. All are either 19/weeks or 17 weeks. My youngest ones are RIRs. I'm anxiously awaiting the first egg any day! I feel like a kid waiting for Christmas morning!!! After loosing 4 of my hens about a week ago, I'm ready for some eggs! I've had them all since they were day old chicks, including my 3 roosters!
