    Finally have her first egg. She is Pearl, a banty Blue Wheaten Americuana (so my wife says). She has been in & out of the next boxes, being noisey and we knew she would be laying soon. No squat from her though at all. Pic didnt come out that great but it is a light green.

    Hers of course on far left. Next to hers in the middle is our GLW Penny. Far right for comparison is Squiddy's. She is a black sex link and has been laying monster mutant eggs.

    Heres a recent pic of Pearl the green egg culprit.

    Yay! And egg! An egg!

    Pearl looks just like my standard size EE Pooh. I wonder if Pooh will lay green eggs too. Do EEs of the same color lay the same color eggs? Hmmm...
