    As first time chicken owners there is lot to learn. We're hoping this EE is a she. She just hit six months old. Any thoughts?

    She's a classic EE pullet. Looks like she should start laying any time now.

    That's welcome news, Donrae. We have four 6 month olds, two started laying a week ago (Barred Rock and Black Australorp. We have another BA and this EE, who have not started laying nor are they acting like they are about to.

    Thank you,

    I agree, a pullet who should be laying very shortly.
