    I feel like I've been waiting forever for my EE to start laying. It was to the point where I was thinking... is that a roo that's just not crowing?
    I got her around the middle of May and today she finally laid her first egg. A beautiful mint green. I'm hoping its green enough that when my Welsummer roo and my Barnevelder roo get older we may be able to make some little olive eggers!
