    Mine is nearly 30 weeks old. She looks ready, but is not laying yet. What about yours?

    Mine was 28 weeks. And she's giving me six blue eggs a week pretty consistently.

    I have four EEs. The first started laying at 24 weeks, the second at 24 weeks/3 days, the third at 25 weeks/4 days, and the fourth at 26 weeks/4 days.

    Mine were both 21 weeks and a few days. One was 21 weeks, 1 day and a few days later we had 2 green eggs so we knew both were laying.

    My EEs are 22 weeks. Been getting light pink eggs for a few days. I think these eggs are from just one of my three. So, I'm still holding out hope for one to lay blue or green eggs.

    The earliest was 24-weeks. I currently have several that are 30-weeks old and no sign that they'll be laying any time soon.

    Two of mine started this week, at 27 weeks. The third is holding out a bit longer. The other 80% or so of my flock has not started to lay yet. I've read that EE's are slow to develop, but with my birds they were the earliest. .

    37 weeks. Now lays 5-6 blue eggs a week. I'd pretty much given up on her.
