Would be interested to hear what the vet says.........does the vet have poultry experience/interest?

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

 

Quoting centrarchid:

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."

I believe she does! I know she used to raise chickens herself, and has mentioned going on house calls to attend to goats and cows so I'm thinking maybe chickens would have popped up as clients here and there?

Only by asking will know for sure......if she's interested, I would imagine she has the skills to research/learn.

UPDATE for anyone following this post!

 

 I decided to skip the vet and just let it be. But I'm wondering if it was the FOOD! Our local Wilco ran out of Layena CRUMBLES for the past few months (which is what they were started on) and I had to use the PELLETS. Well, about 2 weeks ago the crumbles came back into stock so I bought some and put that in for the girls. Today, I got my first GREEN egg from Louise since Summer! So I'm not sure if it was the food change, or a possible health issue that resolved but she gave me a green today! :)

Did you ever find out what was going on? Mine is doing exactly the same thing for the last couple of days. Used to be a darker green than my other EE and now they are pink.

I seriously don't think that any way that a chicken can change from laying pink(white shell base) to green (blue shell base).....or visa-versa.

Pretty hard to guarantee that it actually happened unless bird was isolated it's whole life...or one of only 2-3 birds.

No I never ended up going to the vet or anything! She just started back laying greens again! I couldn't believe it!

I know it sounds CRAZY but I only have 4 girls, and it really honestly and truly DID happen! She went from green to pink then back to green! I check eggs everyday and the normal tans stayed tan- just the green disappeared and the light pink replaced the greens.... then came back to green again!

Again- here is a pic from the first day that I got a pink egg. The tan is the color of the other girls, the green was the usual from the day before for reference. That particular day, 3 tans, and 1 pink!
