EO girls (24 and 19 weeks old)

my deer colored girl (24 weeks) just starting to get a comb and wattles. She is a big girl, so I think she was working on getting big before she lays her first egg.

19 week olds. My welsummer, Twist, and Annie our Marraduna colored girl. You can see that their combs and wattles are much bigger and they are 5 weeks younger. I'm guessing Twist will lay first. If Twist is on my lap, Annie will jump up there too. She gets jealous and wants attention.

So beautiful at POL!  Great pics, NP!

I'll wager Annie lays first, and SOON! With Deery about 2 weeks later.

Love these pics... :love:

Re: EO girls (24 and 19 weeks old)

I love to see happy chickens like your girls. All are lovely and beautiful.

Some days I want to just hang onto all the different sizes and colors of EOs we are seeing just because I enjoy the diversity so much.

Yup me too! I have one coop dedicated to my EO girls that have stolen my heart for one reason or another. The unusual colors or their insane friendlyness even though they are not good breeding stock, they will be my layers. Thanks for sharing your pix NP.

Aren't they beautiful, I mean if you had never seen a chicken before, the geometrical patterns are stunning!   And they look so good natured too! :love:

Re: EO girls (24 and 19 weeks old)

Thanks everyone. They sure are sweeties.

Annie insists on escaping every day over the electric fencing. Our Welsummer cockerel is a terror. He has matured quickly, but everyone is developing a bit slower. All the EOs are terrified of him. The two EO boys run away anytime he gets near.

We decide to separate him with the 3 big Orpington girls. They seem to be at the top of the pecking order and can hold their own against him.

So in the other pen we have 2 EO cockerels, 2 EO girls, 3 Welsummer girls and one Olive egger. I hope they can all get along when the EO boys get to crowing and dancing in circles. At 20 weeks I thought they would be crowing already. Probably good that they aren't because the other guy crows enough already!
