    I thought EE's were Americaunas. What is the difference?

    Thanks for the information. I wanted EE's too. One layed day before yesterday and they both layed today. Loved opening the nesting box to find 5 eggs/ the blues just made it look so pretty. I have one hen that lays dark eggs. Today I got 3 Black Copper Marans so maybe soon it really will be a wide range of colors.
