Hi there, My questions are: How long does it take an Americana to begin to lay. When does its egg get its color? I have two Americanas. One is 2.5 years old and her egg is pinkish. A younger one about 8 months old I thought was giving me a med brown egg. Then all of a sudden, a mostly green but with some brown egg begins to show up Did she change color or just begin to lay? Mysteries of chickens! Thanks for the answers ahead.
