    Congratulations!! We just had our fist olive egg not too long ago. It was funny my mother comes in hollering for me, and we started dancing in our dining room. We were so excited. We just got our first blue egg Wednesday and did the same thing. We could not resist the excitement. [​IMG]

    Congratulations! I'm a big fan of green eggs, and especially the ones with speckles! Woot! Give your girls some extra treats. [​IMG]

    Was it an EE that laid the pretty sage egg? I have an EE but she won't be ready for about 2 more months...Boy it sure is gorgeous!!! Congrats!!!

    It is always just like the first time (as in when I first got an egg) is so exciting. Especially when the eggs are colored by Mother Nature. [​IMG]

    Quote:I'll be honest that Sage Egger must have come out of the wood pile. [​IMG]

    That is not a normal color for my girl's. [​IMG]

    The odd sage egg did come from my EE's though. She must have been jealous of the olive egg. [​IMG]

    Is the OE from a bantam? Or is it safe to assume they are small being from a pullet?

    I can't wait for my 1st blue egg, but at 12 weeks on the Ameraucana i know I have some time to wait. What is the cross for that pretty sage egg. I would love some that color.
