    I was wondering if EE's from the same line will have the same color egg or is every EE capable of laying a slightly different color egg. I have a wheaton EE that lays a beautiful blue egg. I also have two EE's that I hatched from eggs from the same parents. Just was wondering if when they started I would be able to tell who laid what by their color or if the color would be the same.

    I had a flock of EEs. Two where wheaten and laid nearly identical blue eggs. The other hens were were white and buff and they laid olive colored eggs that were slightly different shades.

    Thanks for the reply. Two of mine are different shades of brown with the beards very beautiful one is darker than the other. I guess I'll know soon. the wheaton only started laying a little over a week ago at 7 months and the other two are only 22 weeks so soon enough i hope i will see what color they will lay.
