Pearl Leghorns win the early-laying race by a landslide

Cardboard nest box

Pullet eggWe added two kinds of hybrids (Pearl White Leghorns and Red Stars) to our flock this year specifically to increase our egg production.  I knew they'd start to lay young, but I wasn't quite prepared to see pullet eggs from the Leghorns on the coop floor when the ladies were only barely four months old!

When it's completed, our starplate coop will become these ladies' new abode, and we've got big plans for making an external nest box to expedite egg-gathering there.  For now, though, I just put a cardboard box full of straw in the broiler coop to catch these early eggs and keep them off the ground.

Good job, girls!

An automatic chicken waterer is essential for laying hens, who need extra hydration to built eggs for your breakfast.
