    Really? a HE? The bin was marked "pullet." We have another EE that i hope is a she. We are hoping for a blue egg laying chicken! We have one EE that is just over a year old and lays gorgeous green eggs.

    He's very nice looking.

    If you want a blue egg though you're going to have to go pure AM and you won't find them at the feed stores.

    There are a lot of us on here that have pure AMs. I have 4 colors myself.

    Maybe you can find a breeder or owner near you with maybe a POL pullet for you.

    Are you going to be able to keep your roo?

    Quote:We get sky blue eggs from one of our EE girls so while it may be pure chance as to what color you get (in eggs), I don't think you have to have a pure ameraucana. Our other EE does olive. We got our EE from a breeder around here though they were marketed as ameraucana's.
