I'll agree. I love all the color variations!
One of the E.E.s has red face and comb (not the other though) and put down a serious squat today. I think the wait for a blue or green egg will soon be over.
The definitive answer is: Just shy of 24 weeks!
OK, that might be just MY experience and only for 1 of the 2 EEs I have. 3 eggs from her so far. Started Sunday 11/25, again on Tues 11/27 and a third today, 11/29.
I've had EEs take anywhere from 24 weeks to 40 weeks to start laying, even in a batch all from the same hatchery. Right now I have 12 EEs that are 31 weeks old. Three are laying. Frustrating little beasties.
I have two EEs that are 27 weeks old - no eggs yet and it's driving me batty! All my other girls (New Hampshires, Delaware, Dominiques) have been laying for a few weeks...it's so hard to wait for that first colored egg!
What do their combs look like? Getting red? Do they squat?
My EEs never squat for me, but I know at least one is laying... with they not squat for people if they have a rooster?
Just got two light green eggs! That means of my 5 EEs, one started at 25 weeks and the other at 30 weeks, still 3 not laying at all.
