    Yes, they can. We had two ee pullets; they started out laying white eggs; in fact we didn't even know they were ee's. As they got older, the shell color changed to pale beige. Right around Easter time, they started laying green and sometimes blueish eggs! Great timing, and what fun!

    That is so interesting. I have 5 Ameraucana that are 23 wks old that haven't started laying yet. I can't wait to see what color they will be.
