    My two EE's are 4 months old and haven't started laying. Those of you that have EE's, how old were they when they started laying?

    Marytoast,

    What color did she lay? I'm really hoping mine lay blue or green, but I have a feeling that I won't be that lucky. [​IMG]

    Poof Face, my EE started laying I think around 6 months. She is now 7 years old and still lays eggs, green ones.

    Quote:You might be waiting a while on that one. From the pic you posted, it looks a bit like a boy! Post a few more pics, especially of the back of its neck and back and tail. A closer pic would also help.

    Buying sexed pullets is only about 90% accurate unless they are Sex-Links. I know thin because I bought two EE Pullets and one was a boy as well. then I started to check it out.
