    I have three youngsters, hatched around 5/1/10. Two are Barred Rocks, and have started laying in the last two weeks. (I have eight small but lovely eggs!) As all of my eggs are light brown, I don't believe that my EE has started laying yet.

    With the BRs, it was easy to watch their combs & wattles change color... are there any visual indicators to look for with my EE? She is clean faced, and has a pea comb. (This picture was taken about a week ago.)

    Thanks for your help!
