Our Easter Egger Chickens

    Our 5 EE's arrived on May 14, 2007 from MMH. We love their coloration and distinctive personalities. The 40-something year-old kids in us are looking forward to our first "Easter Eggs". They live in our main coop with our 5 Mottled Cochins, 3 Silver Sebrights, 2 Black Tailed Buff Japs and our Silver Spangled Hamburg.
    1 week old:

    "The Girls" began laying between 21 and 22 weeks old. Goldie lays pretty olive green eggs, Jamaica and Lacey's eggs have a blue-green tint to them.
