    I went out to collect eggs this morning and was surprised by a blue/green egg! Just when I thought our EE wasn't ready to lay yet...she sure proved me wrong!! (The white egg is from our Leghorn.)


    Now we have four hens that are laying, two are only laying every other day. I'm guessing the EE will probably be an every-other-day girl for a while too.

    My EEs started at 16 weeks, I was amazed, and laid quite regularly right from the beginning.
