    Try to imagine over 80 then. Dummy me brooded & sold chicks to friends & family that didn't want to deal with the mess or having to use a heat lamp. Once they were old enough to go outside I set up a bunch of dog kennels in my back garage and stored them in those until they were sold off. Bad, bad idea :lau At least I was dumb only once :gig

    How old is your EE? I've found mine go in spurts, they take a lot more time off from laying than other breeds, but I love having the varied egg colors, customers love it too.

    So she should be laying pretty soon. My EE just started to lay 2 weeks ago, she was 23 weeks. That's about the average I've had when my others started laying too. I have 2 molting & 1 new layer. Rehomed 4 older ones in September.
