    I have 5 pullets that are from a leghorn hen and ameraucana rooster. I read on here that they would have a lighter blue egg, but a light Creme showed up yesterday and I am wondering if it was one of theirs. There is another suspect hen that I have had for a few weeks but thinking it's a possibility!

    Yes, since the blue egg shell gene is dominant you should get blue egg lying pullets from that cross. If the roo is actually EE, you might only get 50% blue or green layers.
