Elise: The Hen Who Lays Two Different Colors

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Elise the EE harbors a spectacular talent that even astounds me. She has proven herself capable of laying eggs with two different shell colors on alternating days: olive and gray with a slight blue tint. I know, some will wonder if I'm confusing two hens' eggs, but I am 110% sure that it's all Elise. Not only have I caught her in the act of laying both colors on separate occasions, but none of our other EEs produces gray and our only current olive layer turns out eggs with a distinctive shape and shiny coating. Frankly, I didn't know this feat was possible until my lovely girl Elise proved me wrong.

The gray egg shown in the two pictures isn't the same in both; I put two different grays alongside one of her olives.

Here's the incredible girl....:)

Wow, Elise has a talent I haven't heard of! Some chickens tend to have shells fade in color over a while, but I haven't heard of this before.

You have a beautiful hen.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
