Easter Eggers from Hatcheries

I was wondering about everyones experience with getting green or blue or brown eggs from easter eggers from different hatcheries.

For example I have gotten 3 ee's from McMurray and all of them laid green eggs.

How many ee's have you gotten from what hatchery and what percentage laid green/blue eggs?
I got two from Mt Healthy last January and both lay green eggs. Prior to that I got a pair from a local feed store (I think they got them from Privett but I'm not 100% sure) and of that pair, one lays green and one lays a pinky-browny color. I love them all though - their personalities are really funny and they're very outgoing.
McMurray 100 percent green
Ideal 100 percent green

Never came out with blue or other colors. A neighbor of mine had a flock of Ameraucanas a few years before I ordered mine, she had all sorts of colors, different shades of blue, green, a pink and one lavender all from McMurray.

Too bad she got lucky while the rest of us had green egg layers, nothing more.

Oh, no, I am not disappointed at all. I wanted the all green egg layers. I did not want any of the brown, yellow, pink, or lavender eggs because they all look brown to me. The blue eggs look green to me. So 100% green is exactly what I wanted and I am thrilled with my green egg layers.
I'm subscribing so I can see if anyone has ordered EE's from mypetchicken. I am getting 4 this spring, I am hoping for some green or blue eggs. It sounds like this mutt breed is nice for temperament, so I'm so I'll be happy no matter the egg color. :)
2 years ago I bought EEs from Meyer hatchery. They all looked like golden lakenvelders and laid the blue-est eggs. I hated to sell them! Strombergs, McMurray and Mt. Healthy laid all colors. (All purchased within the last 3 years)
My neighbor got 11 Easter Egger hens from Cackle. 8 laid blue/green eggs and 3 laid "pink" eggs.

I've had 5 Easter Egger hens from McMurray. 4 laid blue/green eggs and one laid brown eggs.

We got five from Cackle in 2009. 2 laid green, 2 laid pinkish, and one laid blue. We got 6 from Cackle this year and I think we ended up with 4 green layers and one pale blue. One of the greens is a gorgeous moss green.
