We have a mixed flock that consists of EEs, Delawares, Buff Orpingtons, Golden Polish, and Buff Brahmas. They were all 19 weeks yesterday. We just got our first eggs this week from one of our EEs. The EEs, Delawares and Orps are mostly squatting and have red wattles and combs, and have for a little while. So my questions relate to when to expect the others to start laying. I am pretty sure the first 3 eggs all come from the same hen (she is the only one who's pelvic bones have spread). Should I expect the other EEs to start soon, or could it still be quite a while? Do pullets from the same "batch" and breed tend to start laying around the same time? I know the Brahmas are going to be a while as they are supposed to be slow maturing. I have read that Orps and Delawares are fairly early to mature, and given how they are looking and acting, I expect them to be relatively soon. What about the Polish? Oh, and here is the obligatory picture. They sure are cute little eggs, 36 grams each (just over an ounce). My 7 year old thought they were the best tasting eggs ever.
