    Happy to report that after 34.5 weeks all six teeny tiny chicks we picked up at the feed store the beginning of July 2012 have matured into beautiful healthy pullets that have all layed. Our last hold out was an all white EE that gave us the bluest most beautiful egg I have ever seen today. So I had to share with the forum that has given me lots of advice over the last 34 weeks.

    All girls, green EE, brown BR and cream Silkies. What's even more fun is we can tell by size or color who layed what. So when we crack them to eat we know exactly who gave us that specific egg (and yes we thank them). Never thought we would enjoy them as much as we do!

    Thank you! I understand the waiting game :) Hopefully yours lays sooner than mine did. Hopefully with the weather warming she will. But it was worth the wait. What color is your EE?

    I picked up my egg cartons at the Home Goods store. They had BPA free containers pretty inexpensive and I bought them all. LOL

    Your white EE looks just like my white EE Sunshine that layed the blue egg. Here's a pic,

    Lucky you on the other new girls you are getting tomorrow. Post pics! I would love to have more but at six we are really at our max on our little urban farm. You'll have to post what color egg your white EE lays. I was wondering if all white EE's lay blue eggs??? Probably not, but it will be fun to see how many do.
