    I have 3 EE's and they started to lay between 20 1/2 weeks and 21 1/2 weeks, but all of mine seem to have started earlier than usual. They didn't show the obvious deep red colour and size of comb and wattle as my NHR's and BO's, but their combs and wattles did deepen in colour quite a bit and the pea comb did grow larger and that was my sign they were getting close. The one that has more slate blue-green legs lay's beautiful baby blue eggs and the other two lay an amazing mint green egg. I'm sure you're getting close, but some EE's don't start til after 24 weeks. Have fun!

    It's hard to tell what color EEs will be when they are babies. I had 3 identical brown chicks and they are all completely different now (currently about 4 months old). I then bought a 4th chick that looked like those 3 had looked and it's different, too.

    I need to get some pictures of my girls, but here is my EE roo. My husband took a picture of him last week because we were trying to get one of his friends to take him. I have too many roosters! This one is really sweet. (Edited to add: I just realized after posting this that you asked for EE hen pictures, but this was the only one I had on this computer of one of my older EEs. We actually thought he was a hen until the past couple of weeks when it became obvious that he is a rooster.)

    And here is a cute little EE chick that I hatched out of some eggs from ILOVEFRIZZLES (BYC member). I have no idea what this one will look like grown up, but it's such a sweet little chick.
