    20 weeks? Did I count that right? I have 3 that are 14 weeks, I wasn't expecting any eggs for a couple months...maybe I can look sooner? How exciting for you!

    Quote:Umm, yeah. Easter Eggers, though they do vary, normally lay at the same average point most other production layers begin.



    Congrats on your egg though!! [​IMG]

    Congrats to you!

    My three EEs were also hatched on April 9th. [​IMG]

    I got my first egg at 19 weeks and the other 2 both laid their first eggs on September 17th (23 weeks). Our eggs are olive/green with a gray bloom.

    Raising chickens is so darn fun!

    What do your EE's look like? Are EE's a certain breed?[​IMG] I have a lavender orphington and a mille fleur cross breed, does that mean I could get a colored egg? Green would be so cool:weee
