    about 6 months old

    i knew one of the girls was going to lay any day... didnt know where or when.. they were very noisy last few days. probably preparing for it. lol.
    they free range, so i had been going throughout the yard, looking for their eggs, only to find them in the coop. ha

    Yay! Im glad you finally got a egg. Mine still dont lay, they are qbout 5 and a half months old. So mine should start pretty soon. I really want to hatch some little rouen eggs. At the moment I have 1 rouen girl and a rouen boy and 1 ancona girl and 1khaki campbell boy. when they start laying I will wait a week of them laying and then breed them and hatch some babies!
