I have two EE who are 8 months old. Neither are laying and they are my most aggressive two. The lighter (whitish) one will act like she's going to attach me when I pick up the other ladies. The brown one will go after our Jersey Giant and peck grab her feathers on the back of her neck and both run and jump at each other like they are rosters fighting. Yet, everyone says they are females!

They're both female. EEs aren't always the most reliable layers so yours may start out late.

The jumping on each other can be pecking order, or just play fighting, which younger birds indulge in.
