I have 3 lovely EEs that are 60 weeks old in a mixed flock of BOs, BAs, BRs, from same hatchery order. I have a total of 11 hens and one enthusiastic rooster. Everyone began laying at around 26 weeks - or so I thought! I will consistently get 5 - 9 eggs a day from the girls. Some day I get 2 green eggs but never have I gotten 3 in one day. I assumed that one of the EEs was laying a light brown/pinkish egg with speckles but I never really found out who is laying what. I thought everyone would be laying by now but.....COULD SOMEONE HAVE JUST STARTED???? AT 60 WEEKS? I got a pretty little BLUE egg today. Here it is at the 6 o'clock position. It is BLUE. A beautiful pastel blue. Now, I know I'm not crazy (mostly). Chickens do not change their egg colors. Being a scientific type I felt the need to subject it to a test so we performed a cat scan. The green egg is the 'control'. Mojo says it's blue. I question his ability to even see colors but it was the best I could do, DBF is at work. The egg to the right of the blue one is the one I THOUGHT the 3rd EE was popping out. So here's the question: Do you really think I have an EE that has produced her first egg at 60 weeks of age? I mean, better late than never but that is just totally slacker! I do have a very pretty partridge colored EE that the rooster does seem to leave alone, prefering the others in the flock much more. Is she a late bloomer? I'm thrilled over the blue egg! What do you think?
