    I can't wait to see what they lay.. I can't wait to see my Australorps and GLW to lay.. I hatched them in June and still have not seen an egg...I only have a red star laying now since my coop had an unwanted fox get into it last week and got a hold of some of my girls....

    Can you get closer photos? From these it looks like 4 roos and 1 pullet. But I could be wrong, it would be easier with better face and tail shots.

    It still looks like the gold one and the brown one in the back center of the last shot are roos. Both black and white ones as well.

    Also EEs can lay brown, pink, green or blue.. until they start laying you won't know what color your going to get.
