    My chickens are almost 5 months old, and someone is laying, but I know it's not my beloved EE. I've heard that they're kind of slow on the laying, but how slow? Does anyone have any experience with EEs and their laying habits? I can't wait to get some beautiful eggs from her, so I'm very curious! Thanks so much!
     
  2. EE's have a tendency toward laying later than most. It can take 6 to 9 months from the experiences I have read of some hear on BYC . Although I had an EE lay at 16 weeks old once. That is NOT the norm though.

    Be patient it won't be too much longer.

    I just got my first egg from my EEs today, at 19 weeks and one day. I think this is earlier than the norm though, I've heard 25-30 weeks for EEs.
