    Sometimes it takes longer than 20 weeks. 20 weeks is "most" meaning "most" production breeds like leghorns, production reds, and sexlinks. Even then there are exceptions. For example, silkies, other banties, and large breeds can take their sweet time. Should be any time though, unless she's hiding them from you or is laying a brown or white egg that you can't tell apart from the others. Not all ee's lay green eggs.

    I have 2 ee and they started laying about a month after my other girls did. One lays green eggs and the other lays a light brown egg. If I hadn't seen her lay it I never would have known it was hers.
