    I have an Easter Egger that was laying pink pullet eggs and now - unless I have another laying 2 eggs a day - they are green.... Will they stay green now? She laid pinkish brown eggs for about 2 months (when starting to lay) and this is her 3rd month....

    I heard that whatever color they lay is the color they lay - so I would think you have another layer!

    Lucky you!

    [​IMG] There are only 4 Easter Eggers and one Australorp in that coop. 5 eggs now a day - 2 blue, 2 green and one brown. It used to be: one pink, one brown, 2 blue and one green..... Is it possible for them to lay more than one a day? Otherwise, she has not laid a pink egg in a few weeks - or she's not laying at all. I hatched one of the pink eggs - the roo was a BR, and the baby is definitely out of an EE because he has poofy cheeks.

    I've got newer pics on my PC at home, but this is when he was a few days old - the one out of a brown australorp egg is in front, he is the poofy one behind her.

    OOps. I meant to post them here, but they are here: https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=275306

    I
    think I figured out the issue. Another chick passed on day 1 of hatching and we marked the wrong one. After thinking about it, I think both the pink eggs and the brown eggs are both from the Australorp. She must have laid an egg in the morning a few times and an egg in the evening.... So, fuzzy cheeks came out of blue egg #2 rather than pink egg #1. Looking back at the photos of the 2 that hatched on time, I figured it out. That chick was darker and had no poofies....
