EE's egg size?

Discussion in 'Chicken Behaviors and Egglaying' started by matthewschickens, Jan 4, 2010.

  1. What size and how many eggs do EE's lay?
    Can they lay other color eggs besides green and/or blue?
    We would like green or blue.
    We would get them from Murray McMurray.

    Thanks!!

    its hard to find an ee that lays blue eggs, but on here some people have some very nice blue layers. I have 4 and the size is large and the colors I get are olive green.. and lighter shades of green/blueish

    Both of my EEs lay eggs that are on the bluish side of blue-green The size is what medium eggs in the store are. They have been laying for less than 3 months so its possible they may get larger.

    I've heard of people getting pink eggs as well as cream ones from EEs.

    I have two EE's and one lays a blue egg and one lays a green egg. One lays extra large eggs and one lays med sized eggs. I think it all depends on the bird. Once they start laying you will find out [​IMG]

    So far, 5 of my EEs are laying - three of them lay the green colored eggs you see in my avatar and the other two lay mint (blue/green) eggs, also pictured in the avatar:

    I have two EE's and they both lay green eggs, though the birds look totally different. One of them is more of a wheaten, and the other is a dark/med brown with beautiful lacing. Both have muffs and beards, and their legs are totally different. One has dark legs, and the other looks greenish. Each lays their own shade of green.

    I got my six ee's from mypetchicken.com last June. One lays an olive (almost military) green egg. One lays a light robin egg blue, one lays a pink egg, one lays a cream (almost white) egg and two lay bluish green eggs. Sizes are med to large and seem to be getting larger as they mature.

    Mine are just slightly smaller than my RIR eggs. I've only got two, both are solid black but one has white ear lobes and one has red. I get olive drab green eggs (which turn almost purple in the cold) from one and a mint/blue-ish color from the other although I don't know who lays what. I've been very impressed with their winter laying. They lay as often as my RIR if not slightly more often. They are about 7 months old.

    They can also lay brown eggs. I have 3 that do.
