Georgia is 16 weeks old now.
She is very tiny compared to my 3 other EE's. Im wondering if she is part bantam EE?. She is more orange now with blue/gray highlights. She is so pretty, yet super SPASTIC! Her saving grace will be her egg!

Georgia is 20 weeks /5 months old!
Really no change in her at all in the last 4 weeks. I think she's at least 4+ weeks from laying.

Dottie is 16 weeks old now.
Her feathering is cool. She fades from light to dark across her body. She is the friendliest EE of my 4

Dottie is 20 weeks/5 months old! Girl got quite an impressive beard & tuft!
Her pelvic bone spread is at 2! Her comb has grown some and she is becoming even more people friendly. I think within the next 4 weeks I will get an egg from her.

Coco is 16 weeks old now.
She is turning more of a beautiful soft chocolate brown. She is the calmest EE I have. I think she will be the first to lay of my 4 EE's.

Coco is 20 weeks/5 months!
She has had color on her comb the longest than the other 3. She is getting more skiddish & untouchable. Other than comb, she shows no other signs of lay any time soon.

Update: Destiny is 16 weeks old now! In the middle of a molt and slow to mature. Her breast is turning a pretty light salmon color! Any eggs
from her before 24 weeks would be a complete shock.

Destiny is 20 weeks=5 months!
She is the hardest to figure out. I still think she will be a late layer.

So on the 6.5 week old pictures, due to all of the smoke in the air, I had to take all the pictures inside, hence why they all look more yellowy then the other pictures. but they are getting so big, and no definite signs of any more roos other then Sparky, I am holding out hopes that the other 5 are hens. if you spot anything that makes you feel like one is a roo, then let me know. and besides flying around the pen erratically Sparky seems to be behaving himself, not overly aggressive, waiting on the coop to be built, so I'm sure they will be happy for all the extra space they will be getting. kinda glad though that i have not gotten them out into a coop yet, with all the smoke in the air i would worry too much about them being out there.

Dottie finally "squatted" today! She will be 24 weeks tomorrow. She is still 2 on pelvic spread. Coop change has kept most of my pullets from beginining to lay. But 2 of 4 EE's squatting now! :highfive:
