    Two days ago we got our first egg from Birch, our all white 25 week old EE!!! It is a beautiful blue, like a robins egg. Then today our hold out, 32 week old EE layed her first green egg! That gives us one brown layer EE, two green and one blue! The only one left is the 25 week old SLW.
    I am so excited!!!

    My FL EE's haven't started laying yet either, but my barred rocks just started laying again, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that my EE's will start soon. They're about 25 weeks old, so the timing's about right!
