The first of my 5 month old Amerecana pullets has begun to lay - a tiny brown egg. I have one Amerecana laying for a year and her eggs are pale green and have been since the very first one. A friend shared my Amerecana chick order and she writes today they had their first egg and it was brown too. Anyone have any ideas? The shell color will not change will it? Do you think we were sold not pure Amerecana's but crosses? They sure look the part with their ear tufts etc. Anyone have similar experiences?
