    My EE Penelope has been laying for about 3 weeks now. And I love her to pieces! Almost every egg she has given me has been a double yolker! I am so proud of her. [​IMG]

    She is beautiful! How old is she? What color are the eggs? We have 3 EE's that are 23 1/2 weeks old and we are still waiting for them to lay.

    Thanks! She is 23 weeks, and started at 19 weeks and 2 days. Her eggs are blue while my other EE Iris' eggs are more green. I've read that EEs can take longer than most breeds to lay. Hope yours start soon!
