I know it's an EE but is it a pullet?

    EE's seem to take a really long time to start laying, at least in my experience with them they did, close to 30 weeks of age i believe. Once they start tho its 1 egg every day darn near [​IMG]
    Looks like a pullet to me

    Looks like a pullet to me and funny enough she looks exactly like my EE who is 27 weeks old and not laying either.

    It's a girl, It's a girl. I'm so glad now I just want to see an egg. 27 weeks, 30 weeks, Oh my goodness. And I can't let them out because I didn't get the fox yet. LOL BUT I WILL.

    Looks like my EE who is now 18 weeks, and I am all ready for a long wait.[​IMG]

    If I would have known it would take this long for them to lay I would not have got them. [​IMG] Theres someone on Craigslist looking for EE's maybe I will get in contact with them. I only have 2 of them. [​IMG]

    i have EE's also, at what age can you tell sex? half of mine have a larger red crest, obviously assume they are male. but if at 22 weeks some are still not sure...should i wait?

    Both my EE are laying and they have layed everyday since starting. The first was 17 weeks and the second was 19 weeks. They lay the cutest blue and the other more green eggs.
    I think it is a pullet but have to say the EE cockeral that I sold looked no different in the comb at 15 weeks than the girls and he was not crowing yet.

    All i can say about the eggs is they are really worth the wait, to me anyway. As far as being able to tell when they are roosters i was able to tell at a few months old with the help of byc'ers and some pics [​IMG]
