    ok everybody, our last and final chicken finally laid her first egg two days ago, one of our three EE's. I was sooo eggcited because her egg was an olive color, then yesterday she didn't lay, the other two ee's did. One always lays a light green/blue color, and the other lays a light brown [​IMG]. Anyway, today I got two light green/blue eggs, no brown. One had a little blood on it. Am I to assume my new "olive egger" doesn't really lay olive colored eggs???? [​IMG]

    She may just be adjusting. My Wellie laid some weird colored (light) eggs when she started, but theyve gotten darker. They are really pretty.... ]
    Anyway! I wouldn't give up hope. She will probably get back into olive egging.

    Sorry to ask a question and not answer yours, but how old is your EE? Mine are now 6 months and not an egg among them! Just my RIRs and Barred with their brown eggs. One day I had 3 eggs and hoped that the EEers had started but I think it was just the same older group laying....

    Our first started to lay at 19 weeks, the next 22 weeks, and now the third. I was expecting them to take forever as what i've read is the case, but they were right on the mark! Good luck!
