    Anyone else have a white easter egger? Mine is 34 weeks and still not laying. She's the only one not laying yet. My silkie started to lay last week. Will try to get pics of her this evening.

    I don't have one but I've seen several. They're pretty uncommon - in various batches of 75-100 EEs I've seen maybe 3 or 4.

    Easter Eggers pretty much always take longer to reach point of lay than most breeds. While the average is 20-24 weeks, EEs are typically closer to 26-30, with 30+ not uncommon. And cold weather does not speed the process.

    I'm assuming she's an EE. She's all white with a pea comb and slate colored legs
