    Finally, 29 weeks to the day, our EE Easter has given us our first tinted egg - a beautiful pale green! Now we're waiting on Egg, to see what color hers will be.

    You sure have to wait longer for those colored eggs!

    Heck, I waited 32 weeks for one EE and 34 for another! It was worth the wait...both of my hens lay JUMBO eggs on a regular basis! Plus, I think when they start later, and this is JMO, you tend to have less laying issues with them. Not sure on that, that's just been my experience. Make sure to post a pic!
