    They'll start "squatting" for you. And they may start singing the egg song.

    LOL! I love being sung to! LOL! The egg song...sounds pretty interesting.

    So I started feeding them an egg laying mash. However I am finding that the mash gets stuck in the feeder (doesn't come down) as easily as the pellets. So I kind of have to spin the feeder to get it down. I don't want to have another feeder on the ground because its so much cleaner hanging it from the rafters of the coop. Any suggestions??

    Too young to tell gender yet As for breed, the first looks silver based. Are these birds bantam or standard? Where did you get these from? Second definitely strikes me as Columbian based. Columbian Wyandotte maybe? What kind of comb do they both have? I doubt either of these are EEs, none of the classic signs like beards or slate/green shanks and feet. Their patterns seem too specific to be EE
