Love the color of the olive egg...all your eggs look great! Congrats
I love that color. Looks like and olive egger.. I have been trying to get one of those but they keeps being roosters!. Love the colors!!
We got them from Tractor Supply. The sign said they should lay blue eggs which is why I referenced blue in my original post.....I've learned from everyone here not to trust TS fully LOL
It's gorgeous! I have 3 EE pullets, 12 weeks old. Can't wait 'til they start laying.
(Can't wait 'til someone starts laying! I have 9 pullets and 2 hens, and one of those hens is molting. Getting like 2-3 eggs/week from that one hen. LOL)
I am pretty sure you have an olive egger there. Maybe a cross of one. Most EE's lay bring blue or green eggs, the darkness/richness of the color is not indicative of an EE. You may have got a lucky draw!
Well, it's not TSC's fault, it's the hatcheries..TSC just repeats what they are told by the hatchery.
Most the hatchery EE's I've gotten laid blue/green.
But this bird is probably an OE(different cross than an EE).
What does OE stand for? Curious
We also got another yesterday! This ones a little lighter, I’m not sure if it’s from the same bird or if our other is starting to lay also!
Here’s a shot of our two green eggs. Where’s the ham?
OE = olive egger
Thanks...LOL....I was just sitting here and the light bulb went off. I was coming back to the post to edit it.
