    Well the wait is over and my nervious little Ameraucana pullett is now a HEN! She laid her first little pullet egg this morning. Itis such a pretty color much darker then i could get a pic of. Turquoise really but nothing i would call green. She is a black Laventer split. She was a cull from a breeder that was only growing out the biggest chicks. She was hatched Labor day week end. so she is at about 20 weeks.

    Congrats! Always exciting to get your first blue egg. [​IMG] I remember mine. . . . It was actually green at first which really panicked me, but as that pullet continued, her eggs turned blue in just 3 more days. Whew.



    btw - Your Ameraucana is still a pullet. [​IMG] Pullets are females under 1 yr old. Hens are 1 yr old and older.
