Hi i have 7 hens that are 6 months old. I got my first egg today, which is green. See attached pic.
I wonder if it is my cream leg bar or olive egger? My olive eggers are from BCM x white ameraucana. I expected them to lay later as I have read marans lay at around 8 months.
Both my CCL and OE have a redder comb, much more than my sussex and orpington.
Could CCl lay green? It is supposed to be pure and quite honestly looks like a pure one.

Any ideas?

Looks like the OE. I have a Mystic Marans (which is a cross, not pure Marans) and she started laying very early (18 weeks).
I have 2 Mystic Marans also that hatched 9/11 that still haven’t started laying but several of my other breeds I hatched with them just started this week and last so I’m hoping soon. Will you please post or message me photos of your hens and their eggs?!
