    Trying to decide which hatchery to buy from, right now they both have them in stock. I really want these chicks to get a colorful egg basket. Does one hatchery seem to produce chicks that lay blue/green eggs more then the other? Thanks

    I have 2 EEs that I ordered from Ideal last year. I have one that lays brown and the other a green/blue color. Also, the one that lays blue/green didn't start laying until she was almost 1yr old [​IMG]

    My 11 EE hens from Ideal all lay green/blue eggs. Hope that helps!

    I had one from Cackle that laid VERY BLUE eggs. Bluer than most of my purebred Ameraucanas.
