    EEs are notorious for being slow bloomers. It's a good thing they lay such beautiful eggs! Her face is pretty red, so I'd say you can expect eggs any time. Enjoy them when they come.

    My EE hens just recently started laying this month and they were hatched in February.

    My EE/Delaware rooster just started crowing at 7 months old. The hens usually start laying the same time that the roos start crowing!

    Is she free ranged? They can lay in the darndest places when they start.

    But yeah, the ees tend to lag in laying time.

    I would recommend you keeping them on the high protein feed. I use the non medicated purina flock raiser.
