I have 4 pure Ameraucana's and I've been so patiently waiting for those gorgeous blue eggs. Now it's getting REALLY close, and I'm getting impatient! (They are almost 22 weeks old) A couple of them are getting really red, 1 of them squatted for me several days ago, and last night I saw my Welsummer rooster mate with one of them. I know it's coming soon, but I'm anxious to get them!

Be patient. My easter eggers were the last ones to start laying, and were later than the second to last by a few weeks. My EEs were a good 24-25 weeks old before they started laying (and I think I still have 1 that's not laying since my highest egg day is 10 eggs out of 11 chickens, and there's one EE I haven't seen in the nest box yet).

ETA - I'm not implying that EEs are Ameraucanas. Just that they are mixed with 'em.
