    Congrats !!! It's beautiful..... wish mine would give me her first pretty blue or green egg !!!!

    Any one know if each individual bird lays they same color egg throughout her life, or do they change from blue to green, darken or lighten up ??? Is it effected by food ???

    Congrats on your first EE egg! It's pretty!

    pulleroo, each pullet will always lay the same color egg (as in green, blue, brown, white) but the tinted eggs can tend to darken or lighten. Usually, lighten.

    Very Cool.

    Now I must ask, where do you live and how old are the hens? My little hens must be keeping their legs crossed because I only have one that is laying right now and I got her at a swap recently.
