Hum. I'll pay closer attention. My 4 older girls- all lay different shades and I know them. I haven't seen any small pullet eggs. But a couple that I attribute to my RIR have come lightly speckled the last couple of days.

On the squatting thing: ALL of the 12 girls I got in 2012 from Ideal and raised with a heat lamp (shudder) squatted. NONE of the 7 I got from Meyer in 2015 that were brooded by one of the 2012 girls squatted. The 2015 EEs were hatched June 11 and laid at:

  • 23 weeks 2 days (11/18)
  • 26 weeks 1 day (12/9)
  • 30 weeks 5 days (1/9)

2 each: Black Australorp, Salmon Faverolles, 1 each Ancona, Easter Egger. From Ideal Poultry, hatched June 12, 2012


2 JGs (non standard BAs??), 2 White Rocks, 2 EEs. From Meyer, hatched June 8, 2015

You all sexed my EE- professor Cluck - a few months ago as a pullet. Happy to report she laid this beautiful blue egg today at 24 weeks smile.png her "sister" EE laid the green one - she has been laying for almost 2 weeks now.

Oh and squatting - my girls were June 15 hatch and one EE has been squatting for a couple weeks, about 2 weeks before she started laying at 23 weeks even. The other doesn't squat and laid today at 24 w 5 days. I did have a rooster (accidental) but rehomed him last Friday. He was all over the squatter 😐

I live in the north and do have a light in the coop between 6am-4pm (when it gets dark here). My BO just started laying yesterday and the other 2 aren't laying yet.

Congrats on the pretty eggs!!!! It is nice when they lay different colors, you can keep tabs on who is laying.

 

Why a light from 6 AM to 4 PM, isn't is already light during that time? Well, maybe not at 6 AM, at least not here.

Congrats! I love seeing all the different shades of blue and green that Easter Eggers can lay.

Never give up. While we still live there is hope. With God all things are possible.
