    We have 7 hens, 2 are EE's that lay green eggs. Yesterday for the first time I got 7 eggs, that would mean one egg from each hen. However, only one egg was green. Did someone lay 2 eggs or did one EE change color on us?[​IMG]

    I hope someone answers this because I too have 2 EE's and have no idea which one is laying what egg.

    Hmmm...that's a hard one, but are you sure that 2 of them were laying green eggs? [​IMG]

    If you have always only been getting 1 green egg a day and the rest have always been brown, then chances are that your other EEer has started laying and she will be giving you brown eggs.
