    Well, my Hermione is in the nesting box for the first time and I am praying for blue or green versus pink or brown. Please cross your fingers for me!! She is taking her sweet time about it so it must be a good one!! I hope she is done soon. The suspense is killing me! Go Hermione! [​IMG]

    Yes, I, too, am waiting for my Silver Ameraucana, Pearl, to lay. For the past 2 days she has been inspecting the nests. Hopefully she will find one that is to her liking. [​IMG]

That leaves an EE, a dark brahma and 2 buff orps and they are all 23 weeks old. Yippee!! Good luck with your ameraucana Lee!! I hope she lays for you real soon.[​IMG]

    YAY!! Congrats!

    I'm impatiently waiting for my 25 week old EE to start laying. I keep putting her in the nest hoping that she gets the hint. LOL

    I say I have 2 EE's. Carmella is defeiniely an EE, she lays a pretty mint green egg and she started out laying them large. The other EE, Pearl, the Silver Ameraucana has yet to fulfill what her former owner said about her laying a blue egg. So for now she is the other EE. What can I say? [​IMG]

    Could you post a pic of the comb of your EE egg layers. Mine are 19 weeks tomorrow and they are starting to check out the nesting boxes. Thier combs are still pretty small and pale....hmmm.
