    First olive egg from my Light Brahma roo x EE/Americauna hen crosses!
    Not sure which of the 3 pullets laid it. They were 24 weeks old as of last Friday.


    Opened the nest box and surprise!

    Compared to my BR Little Hen's eggs, she laid the 3 small brown eggs. The pullet's first olive egg is even smaller.

    Egg came out of one of these three goofballs. They are a riot to watch, they are much more "playful" than my BRs or Maran. Better flyers too even though they are bigger than even my dominant BR Momma Hen.
    The two white ones have big puffy cheeks like their momma and feathered legs like their daddy roo. Black one does not have puffy cheeks but has her momma's coloring and a few feathers on her legs like daddy roo.

    That's very pretty! I'm trying to hatch some Light Brahmas. Sounds like they have gentle dispositions.
