    Do your EEs lay pretty well? Mine lay about 4 eggs a week, but other people tell me EEs don't lay very many eggs. Guess it all depends on what goes into them, I guess.

    The two olive eggers that hatched on Christmas Day! With my luck, both are roosters...

    I got a dirty look for taking that one... :gig
    But I couldn't resist with the little blue bibbed stretching it's neck over the others like that... :D ;)



    Thanks, I love sharing them...
    Calls are soooo much different!! Noisy, yes they can be... but they imprint so easy and have such awesome personalities... yeah, they love a good mud dabble, but they really, REALLY enjoy cleaning up in a fresh pool...

    Heh... that's like all the ones that say Ameraucanas don't lay well... mine lay 6 eggs a week... so did my EE's, CLB's and I think my Marans were a bit less... :confused:

    My EEs are my best layers right now. 6 of them lay and I get 4 eggs a day reliably. Another inherited too much cochin and brahma and lays pinky brown eggs so I can't tell for sure unless I see her on the nest.

    OK, I'm not crazy then - the person I talked to must have a bunch of hatchery EEs around or something. (Well, maybe I am crazy but I am happy with how my EEs lay!)
     
  8. My young EEs are getting pretty red in the face, so I'm hoping they start soon--they're the ones that had just been delivered to the feedstore on July 11. I do know that my older EE, before she entered molt a few weeks ago, was giving me 5-6 eggs a week. I could tell it was her pretty easily--not only is she my only green layer, she was the only one giving me any eggs once Frieda went broody last September. 6 adult hens, 4 POL pullets, and 3 chicks (who are off the hook, admittedly) and we finally broke down and started buying eggs. Mr. P is getting rather annoyed with buying feed for freeloaders--but he's the one that doesn't want them ranging the yard feeding themselves 'cause of the poo.

    Nah, Friday, I've heard that tossed around a lot... but then I heard others say opposite too... also seems each person has a different perception of 'laying well'...
