    I have 19 pullets, ages 26 & 27 weeks and none of them had started laying until Monday when I got my first egg, which was a lovely shade of green. Yesterday there was another one of the same hue. Today there were three, two green and one light brown. Looks like the EE's are starting the party, and I'm pretty sure one of my BR's laid the other one Of the 19, only 3 are EE's. Now if they can just talk the rest of their friends into getting to work, I'd really appreciate it. [​IMG]
