    My first few eggs about a month ago were a greenish blue color. I got them every 2 or 3 days. I didn't know which chicken layed them, I looked at pictures of chickens that lay colored eggs and didn't see any that matched my hens.( I got straight run pullets)Now I'm getting light tan eggs every 2 or 3 days. The green ones haven't shown up in a couple of weeks. Can a hen start out with one color then change?
    Also on a side note how many posts do you have to have to post pics? Really would like to post pics to see if anyone can recognize the breeds.
    thanks for any info

    you need 10 posts to be able to post pictures. So reply to this and a few more and you have it. It would be really unusual for eggs to change color that drastically. I'd say your girls are just getting into the swing and it'll take a few weeks before you see them laying consistently.
