My 2 girls are 5 1/2 mos old, should they be laying by now?
Unfortunately, EEs often are slow to mature fully enough to lay. More like six, six-and-a-half months.
but when they do..they are from my experience anyways....a laying machine. I have 5 and I get atleast 3-5 eggs a day.
Mine started at 28+ weeks old. She lays 2 green eggs every 3 days. Like clockwork.
I don't remember for sure when mine started laying last year. I think they were somewhere between 20 - 24 weeks. As the others have mentioned mine are laying machines. All three of them laid throughout the winter and have not slowed down yet. We were so happy with them that we got 4 more this year.
My EE's were slow to start laying, about 6 1/2 months. But now they are machines. And I love the color of their eggs
What colors do you get...I would like to get 4 however Im having a hard time finding any around K.C. that I can just go p/u 4 at.....so I may have to just wait on the easter eggers
The vast majority of EEs lay eggs that are shades of green, from olive to seafoam. Then the next largest percentage is blue eggs. Then brown, pinkish, or cream in a small percentage (that didn't get the blue egg gene).
