It's a yellow egg!

After waiting 9 months, my EE finally decided to lay her first egg. What a shock to not see a blue or green, but rather a yellow egg in the nest! Who knew!?!

You never know how much of the blue gene is left in EEs after many generations of crossing.

Disappointing though, I suppose.

Not seeing yellow....but yeah, not all EE's lay green/blue.

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."

The yellow one your talking about is the one on lower left, right? Interesting to know since I just ordered 3 Araucana/Ameracauna among my 15 chicks order.

It looks like a cream color.

Was breeding Welsummers and Barnevelders. Not anymore thanks to a bobcat.

 

Having an Icelandic in the coop is like having a 2 year old in the house - they are into everything and don't follow the rules.
