    Can one single EE lay more than one color egg? or does each bird lay only one color?

    I do believe each individual bird lays only one color egg.

    Each bird lays only one color. The intensity of the color may change.

    The first eggs may be darker blue, green, etc and will lighten as the bird matures or gets further into the laying cycle.

    They can lay one color, but the intensity does change, It seems from my experience that the hotter is gets here like 100+ for 5+ days my brown and green eggs get lighter.

    I have 3 EE and I can tell who has laid and who I am waiting for! Same color egg for each chicken is my vote too.
