    Hi! My Ameraucana might be laying, but I don't know. Her eggs are pale whitish leaning towards brownish green. She is a little behind schedule on development because the bigger girls used to have a problem with her. Everything is fine now, but I'm just wondering if she MIGHT be laying.
    thanks

    Yes, she might be laying. Could you post some pictures of her please?

    Mine arent laying Due to the cold it was 9 degrees lst night
    and now its about 20 and i have no heat or lights
    I like to give my flock a rest. but if you have found eggs
    under her then she is starting to lay.If you have a 40 watt bulb in her
    coop that also helps the lay.hope this helps.
    Iam sure some on here may have a better answer .

    Sounds like she's laying to me. [​IMG]

    However I believe you have Easter Eggers, not Ameraucanas. [​IMG] (EE's are farm more common and lay green or brown eggs; Ameraucanas are not easy to obtain and should only lay blue eggs)
