    Yep. That happens to mine too. But usually I eat them before they do that.

    Does anyone know why this happens?
    My hen just started laying blue eggs this week, so I guess I better hurry to get pics.
     
  5. Hi! I've noticed my Ameraucana and blue-green egger eggs fade a shade or two in the incubator.
    Yaaay Darlene! I was going to email you that some of her siblings started laying last week! So far they are all blue-greenies and I hoped your girl wouldn't be far behind.
