    I started raising layers this year. The goal was to have a decent variety of chickens so i got 8 different types. Maran, barred rock, buff orpington, speckled sussex, rhode island red, golden and silver laced wyandottes, and an easter egger. Through some bad luck on my neighbors part I also inherited his barred rock and a black australorp and they were accept with no problems by my girls. From my knowledge,I thought i had all brown egg layers except my easter egger until today when I went into the coop and found 8 eggs 2 of them being the bluish green color. Anyone have any ideas on which one of my girls could be laying the second bluish green eggs. Also, I check for eggs multiple times a day since the girls have only been laying for about 3 weeks.

    thanks

    My guess your ee didn't lay yesterday when you checked. . Then layed one after you checked and then again today. .. I guess watch and see if you keep getting 2 green eggs a day.. if you do. One isn't purebred

    Well mistakes happen.. all the time.. sometimes eggs get pushed to corners of nest .. easy to miss one
    I know I've done it..
    If you keep getting 2 green. . Then may you got a mix breed from your neighbor? Not all ee look the same.. ee can have single comb too.. depending on breeds it was used to create them.. But in general. Hens don't lay 2 a day.. and that's that.. if you keep getting 2.. look harder at the ones from your neighbor..

    I'm only seeing one Easter Egger there. I'd say you just missed the egg.
