    Alright when I went to collect my eggs today, I had 2 blue eggs in the nest box along with 7 regular eggs from my other hens. I didn't think anything of it until I realized that I only have one ee hen......

    First off i collected yesterday at about 8 o'clock, and i didnt miss any eggs.

    Possible reasons for the extra egg...

    1) My ee hen layed after 8pm last night than again before i collected at 5pm today.
    2) My ee hen layed 2 eggs today
    3) 3 of my chickens (2 slws and 1 br ) haven't layed yet so this could be from them? They might of got ee in there bloodline?
    4) My ee cockerel isnt a cockerel and he is really a hen. I got it as a male for warmth chick in a ideal order. But i posted on here a few times about him and everyone said it was def a male. but than again hes 29 weeks old and hasnt crowed yet.

    Please help im very confused

    You have these scenario's, but you know these clever chicken people will come up with something else and it will make perfect sense!
