    we are mid wicked snow storm in denver here and my ameracauna laid her first egg! Shes 25 weeks tomorrow! YAYYY!
    not that I'm ungratefull...but...
    its a super light brown...i thought they were spose to be green or blue..or red..
    will they turn that color after shes been laying for awhile?

    Quote:I have to agree. And sorry to say that is the color egg she will always lay.

    Do you have a pic of her??? Would love to see her. [​IMG]

    [​IMG]:weee Well...congrats on her first egg! And I've heard some people call a really light brown/tannish color "pink." But EEs are mixed (supposedly to get the colored eggs), so I guess off colors can result. Like you, I got my EE for the green/blue eggs. She's not old enough to lay yet, but I'm crossing my fingers when it happens that I will get easter eggish colored eggs. She's a sweet girl just the same, so I guess I'll just have to be grateful for whatever eggs she gives me... [​IMG]

    I was told mine were auracannas when I ordered them and when they were old enough I sent pictures to my poultry buddies on another forum and they told me they were EE`S some of them lay blue eggs and I have one that hers are white.I wanted the colored eggs thats why I ordered them.

    She is a pretty girl. Are you sure she laid the egg in question?

    That's pretty close to what my girl looks like too. Easter Eggers can lay all different colors because they're technically 'mutts'. You don't know which genes are going to be present in the egg color scheme of things. They have the potential to lay colored eggs, but that won't necessarily be expressed. At least she's a good chicken and has laid for you!
