    After almost 8 months of waiting our Ameraucana finally laid some eggs. ( she always looks evil in every picture that we take of her :p) She laid the green eggs.[​IMG]

    Those eggs are gorgeous!

    But Ameraucana's don't lay green eggs.....you have an EE(easter egger) or actually an OE(olive egger).
    Maybe an Ameraucana crossed with a dark brown layer.

    Quote: We realized afterward that they were not that green....We were just so happy that she finally laid something. Now she is being pampered and praised like a queen for being our first (actual) laying hen.

    Quote: Don't worry! It will happen! We had given up hope that they would ever lay any eggs so by the time I finally noticed one egg sitting out in the open she had already laid 4!
