    Our EE will be 21 weeks today and our cochin will be 22 weeks old today. We have 5 laying white leghorns but I can't wait for colored eggs! I check everyday for squatting but non yet! I took these yesterday to show the comb growth.

    I know our cochin Gracie's comb will grow slow because of her breed.

    Is that frost? Mine are layers are doing fine, two have stopped laying everyday. The combs on yours look quite small for 25 weeks old. Though I know nothing about bantams.

    Yup its frost. First time I've had bantams and actually they will be 24 weeks old next week, I can't count hahaha. Our days are getting shorter here sunrise 630am and sunset by 430pm so sunlight not in my favor. Hope you see eggs soon. I will keep this thread updated if I get an egg this Fall/Winter.
