Can 4 month old chickens lay eggs?

When your chickens reach four and a half months, farm fresh eggs are just around the corner. Now is the time to introduce your laying pullets to a complete layer feed. The transition is essential because hens require different nutrients as they begin laying, including additional calcium for egg shell production.

Is it OK to eat the first egg a chicken lays?

Pullet eggs are the first eggs laid by hens at about 18 weeks old. These young hens are just getting into their egg-laying groove, meaning these eggs will be noticeably smaller than the usual eggs you come across. And that’s where the beauty in them lies – quite simply, they are delicious.

What chicken lays eggs at 4 months?

Most of the egg laying hybrids start laying at 4 to 5 months of age. These include Pearl White Leghorns, Black Stars, and Red Stars. Hybrid egg layers are bred by crossing two different lines or breeds. They are known for their excellent productivity and high feed conversion ratio.

Can you eat an egg right after its laid?

Freshly laid eggs can be left out at room temperature for at least a month before your need to start thinking about moving them into the fridge. We like to make sure we eat ours in under two weeks (because they tend to taste better), but so long as the egg is eaten within one month of it being laid, you will be fine.
