    I have 6 EE's that are 19 weeks old. I have had one egg about 4 days ago. Then, nothing for a couple days. Then two yesterday and nothing today. I suspect all 3 were the same hen. They are exactly the same color and size. Do any of you know when the others will start? When I had EE's before, they all pretty much started at the same time.

    They'll all be starting soon enough. When my hens started laying their first eggs were staggered over the course of a month. Enjoy the beautiful eggs!

    Quote:It has been long time since I had "new" chickens. Thanks!

    I did enjoy eating the eggs. The color and freshness is so much better than store bought eggs.
