    I was wondering if anyone can post some pics of an EE that is about to lay or that has been laying. I would like to compare mine with to see how close she is to laing. On Sept 13th she will be 5 months old.

    These are my EE's. I've only got the three. My EE hen isn't laying yet. She's 5 months old also. I'm expecting her to start laying soon. I read here that they usually start around 20 to 24 weeks. I guess we have to be patient. I'm sure you are as excited as I am to see what color eggs she will lay!

    These are all 22 weeks old and started laying in the last 2 weeks. The white one and the one in the lower right box are both EE's too.

    I can't wait to see what color our 'brownie bird' will lay. This waiting is killing me, I wish she will hurry up and lay soon.
