I have five EEs and two OEs that were last years pullets, there was a sixth but it turned out to be a rooster. I love my EEs I had problems with dogs killing my birds for years but after moving I got lucky and haven't lost any! It makes me so happy to see a bunch of blue eggs when I go out there and collect.
I also have a question for anyone who can answer
What color eggs would you get from crossing a blue or blue-green laying hens with Orpington roosters who I'm pretty sure their sisters lay light brown eggs? How about olive laying hens?
I'll be hatching chicks soon and I'm trying to get some color ideas.
The lighter the brown the lighter green you will get ..
