    Hm, oh well i am ok with that. As for when they start to lay i know they take a bit longer to mature, but how old are they before they start to lay? I know with some breeds its 20-21 weeks. What about them?

    EEs being a cross it really depends on the individual bird and what breeds are in its heritage, had a white EE hen that clearly had white leghorn influence and she started laying at 6 months old while her hatchmates anywhere from 8-10 months.
