In the Brooder
- Jul 10, 2011
My Easter Egger started laying today and I was so excited to see a light blue/green egg but...........she laid a white egg? Is this normal? Do some Easter Eggers just not have the tinted color ?
No, I already used it (hehe).....I made peanut butter cookies. It was white like my leghorns. I practically saw her lay it though so I know it was her. ??????
Yea it happens. Ameraucanas or in this case eater eggers usually have the blue allele or blue gene in their genetics. However, easter eggers are cross breeds or "mutts" so an ameraucana could have been crossed with a leghorn or some other breed making them lose this particular trait. This trait may not be necessary lost but it definitely isn't dominant.
