    Okay, the sweet 16 are now 17 weeks 4 days old and I've gotten 2 eggs in the past 3 days but I think I know who is laying, not 100% sure, if you'd like to take a guess that would be great. Eggs are somewhat small but for the first ones I'm totally okay knowing this is just the beginning of more to come. [​IMG]

    My guess is Gidget our SS, she has been so loud and vocal and super red, I laugh everytime she goes into the "talk".

    These are the others that are possibilities, vocal and turning red?

    Congrats. I remember my first egg. Fortunately, it was green which made it a no brainer to point to the EE as she's my only green egg layer.

    The only breed I have that you have is a Buff Orpington, and I think she needs to turn more red before she'll lay. And for what ever it's worth, she was my last one to start laying. About two-three weeks after the others started. But she's a producer now that she's ramped up.

    Quote:Thanks!!! I love the SS's and Gidget is so funny and docile, I think she is the one, but I've not witnessed it.
