    This is my barred ee hen. She is somewhere between 12 and 16 weeks old I think. I'm really not sure. About how much longer till she lays? Also plz give me your guess and the one that's closest or right on I will ship 6 eggs for free. You can enter twice. I will keep up with the days. If someones has already guess your date I will pm ou and get another one. Thanks. I hope these pics help.

    Most birds start between 17-25 weeks. She's looking nice and red in the face, so she might be on the earlier side of that.

    No guessing here - I know they will do it on their own internal schedules. [​IMG]

    just for giggles, I'll say she lays 5 weeks after the date of your post (which happened to be my birthday)

    She is nice and red in the face. I say the day before Thanksgiving. She will thank you for taking good care of her by leaving you an adorable wee little green egg. [​IMG]

    Hello! I have a question or two before I make my official guess. (I'm guessing for fun--no eggs please! I don't have an incy.) Is she squatting yet? I say it's two weeks after she starts squatting.

    I love the barred rocks, and also EEs! She's pretty!
