    This is Arial's first egg at 26 1/2 weeks. It is hard to tell from the pictures but it is a pale mint green. She is the 2nd out of my 4 babies (2 buff orpingtons, 1 light brahma and an EE) to lay and the first one to actually use the nesting box. She picked the only one that had golf balls in it.

    Yeah, I knw what you mean about dying waiting! My 2 older EE pullets are about 30 weeks old started laying about 10 days ago. The other I'm still waiting on. {sigh} She has 'looked' ready for weeks now too! And the roo has been breeding her for a couple weeks now. I keep thinking every day that there will be a new blue/green egg out there....but nuthin. [​IMG]

    Then I have two younger EE pullets that are 25 weeks old - and nothing from them either! Oh, well - I've just about given up that they will EVER lay now. LOL
