Hen lays egg at 33 days of age

2014-04-24 - Egg by 33 day old hen

Coturnix coturnix Quails never fail to impress. Today I have had a hen laying an egg while she is only 33 days of age.  What the reason or significance of the early maturity is, I do not know. This hen is also from the same batch that produced a Male crowing at 18 days of age.
