    I am guessing she is about 5ish months old she was about 2 or 3 weeks old when I got her. And the time I don't know I was at work most of the day but so far she laid an egg on Saturday and Monday.

    Also my other young ladys are starting to sit in the nests for a bit at a time I can't wait. [​IMG]

    Yeah, congrats. Mine are nineteen weeks too, I've got a silver Phoenix laying one a day, and one that has laid only once. I've only got 5 eggs so far out of 14 hens. This seems to be the week for all of us who got babies the first of May! Woohoo![​IMG]
