    I know araucanas and ameraucanas lay either bluish to aquaish or greenish eggs. Do EE lay different colored eggs everyday? [​IMG] Like today pink and tomorow blue? Sorry for the dumb question but their name makes me believe that. If they do, where can I get a few?

    Nope, not a dumb question at all. Each bird has a color that she lays all the time. If an EE hen lays pinkish eggs, she'll always lay pinkish eggs, never green or blue.

    Agree, her egg color is determined by genetics. She will always lay the same colored egg.
