Chanteclers 19 Weeks Old

The Chantecler Chicks are nineteen weeks old on Friday December 6th. It turned out much better than I had previously thought I have 4 pullets and one cockerel. According the the literature a pullet should start to lay her first eggs anywhere between 16 and 20 weeks  old. So far I haven't seen any eggs in the nests that I thought were laid by the young birds. Every once and a while I find them up in the nest checking them out but I don't think there have been any eggs yet.
