My 3 EE girls were born at the very end of March and none of them have laid yet .
I havent seen them squat or anything .......
But here is a *really* weird thing.
These 3 girls are in with my others who were also born in March. We also have a roo in with them that was born in March as well.
Diesel the roo, often pecks at the EE girls ( all 3 of them ) and I'm just wondering why he is pecking at the 3 EE girls and **only** the EE girls.
Is it because they're not yet laying ?
Could it be their coloring ?
I have 21 birds in one yard and coop. These consist of 1 Golden Comet , the 3 EE girls , 6 production reds , 5 tetra tints, 3 black stars and 2 amber links plus the 1 white leghorn roo.
Oddly enough , one of the EE girls is the smallest of my birds and the lowest in the pecking order. I nicknamed her Baby because she was so small .....well, it stuck but she is the cutest thing you ever saw.
I've often considered in the last couple of months, of putting the 3 EE girls in their own yard and coop until they started laying ...thinking that maybe since they are the 3 lowest in the pecking order that it may be a potential cause of them not laying.
( now watch that I've posted this, I'll find that one or two or even all three of the EE girls have laid their first egg )
