    I just found my 1st egg yesterday. It's a dark green. I was hoping for blue from my EE hen.

    Thanks for letting me share. Can't post a pic until I find batteries for the camera! [​IMG]
    Got the batteries from DD and I tried. You get the idea! I went out to the coop today and found another olive and a pale mint green one. So, 2 of my ladies are finally laying!

    Hi,

    Congrats on the eggs!

    How old are your EE pullets? My three are about 27 weeks old and haven't laid and egg yet--not even one of them!

    Good luck with them! [​IMG] Genie

    P.S. About the pictures, try taking them outdoors. That usually shows up the color better. And do keep the white egg next to the colored ones, that really helps.

    My EE's are only 15 or 16 weeks--I think they would be the only ones to that those eggs. My 2 older hens are barnyard mixes and I think they will lay brown.
