EE's egg changing colors

Discussion in 'Chicken Behaviors and Egglaying' started by hobbyfarmrookie, Sep 28, 2009.

  1. I have an EE's that layed a few blue/green eggs then it appeared they started getting darker and now they are brown. Is this normal really happening? Is it normal? Will they ever be blue/green, again? Or, have I completely lost my mind?

    I am sure it is her she has been the only one laying in that nest.

    I think its another chickens egg...Once a hen starts to lay an egg its in the GENES...genetics...THAT they will lay the same color egg might be a dark blue or green alittle....

    I wold investigate it...nest patrol every 10-20mins, or put her alone for a few days.
