We are pretty excited over here as our chickens turned 16 weeks old a few day ago. Chickens at the earliest are known to start laying eggs at this age. It’s truly been amazing to watch how fast growth takes place. Raising them has been a great learning experience for everyone in the family. I don’t consider myself an expert by any means but I do feel that raising baby chicks to their current age can be done fairly easy again. I feel I can give a good amount to advice to others raising backyard chickens of their own if needed. So if you have any question please ask away and if I don’t have the answer, I know of some great resources to point you toward!
