    I was happy to see a egg in there but why did she have to lay a brown one [​IMG] .
    I have lots of brown egg layers now I need to find some that will acually lay greenish blueish eggs even olive would have been better....

    Man! Im so sorry. If you want to try incubateing a few...mine are great blue and green layers. When I first started getting eggs from mine, I pulled the brown layers out, and put them in the mutt pen. ( of course the EE's are mutts, but still) I just hatched out a few of my own. THis is the 3rd generation....1 and second are all blue/green layers.

    She is in a pen with a EE rooster so it was her egg and I got her from orschlens who said they came from Estes.

    I've been looking around these boards the last couple of days. I've had chickens for a few years, but have never encountered the term "EE"

    What does EE stand for?
