    I hatched eggs in my 1st grade classroom and was given an assortment of eggs. They were marked with breeds but many hatched over night. [​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    Looks to be an Easter Egger or blue ameraucana.

    That's an easter egger, not an ameraucana. Very pretty pullet though!

    There were two eggs marked Easter egger. We were hoping it was one. We watched the other one hatch and it was all black. Do they usually look that different.

    She will likely lay a nice green or blue egg :)


    Yep, they can be very different because easter eggers aren't a real breed, so they can come in all colors.

    Is there a way you can tell what color egg they may lay?
