I always read that EE may lay blue/green eggs but also tan or pink eggs.
Do you have EE that lay different colors than blue/green ?
If yes, do they have pea comb and slate/green legs ?

93% of the time an EE with a pea comb will lay blue/green eggs, but there is that small 3% chance that it will not, while 3 percent is small Statistically speaking for the backyard breeder, for large hatcheries that hatches hundreds of thousands of them 3% is quite alot of people getting pink/tan eggers

This hen had a pea comb and pretty willow green legs and laid a cream colored, torpedo shaped egg.

Funny thing was, she was 2 years old when I saw her laying that egg...and I'd thought one of my new layers was laying it because I'd never had an egg like that before. She had to have been laying the year before, but either she wasn't laying or her egg changed after her winter break.
