    Our EE, Harley, laid her first egg today! I wasn't home to see it so I don't know if she sang or stayed silent. She's 23 weeks old! It's nice to get variety in our eggs now!

    Harley. Crazy eyes haha. She's so sweet now. This is an old pic so her comb has grown.

    I rearranged the white ones to make them more picture friendly since they had poop stains on them.[​IMG]

    Now we are waiting for our 24 week old cochin Gracie to mature!

    How exciting! I have two EE and they are still a bit young...not sure their age but I run out there every day hoping today is the day...sigh, oh to have a green or blue egg. [​IMG]

    Check their combs to get an estimate. Harley started squatting last Monday so it took her exactly a week to lay her first egg! I'll post a pic of Harley to help you age yours.
