    Is there a way to know which EE's will lay what colored egg or is it just wait and see?
    I've got 4 I'm keeping for sure. I'm just hoping I'll have one that lays green eggs.

    It is a lovely game of wait and see. I got 3 new EE's in April and the first one started laying 2 weeks ago... brown of course. I am still waiting on the other two to see what they are going to lay. I have 3 1 1/2 year old EE's in my laying pen and I get two blue/green eggs and 1 green egg from them, of course I ended up finding a new home for an EE in there that laid brown too.

    That's what I thought. I'm going to have all 7 until next spring anyway. We'll see then...[​IMG]
