Finally - today we got our first green egg!!! We have on Easter Egger (said to be an americana, be we are not 100% sure) She is about 28 weeks old and I have been hoping that i'd get a green egg from her. I started thinking maybe she is already laying brown eggs (since I have 2 buckeyes laying brown pullet eggs - maybe I just haven't seen her in the nesting box yet) My rooster has been very attentive to her lately. Fog-Horn-Leg-Horn (aka Foggy) is a sweet little white roo.. we kept him because he is kind to the girls but.. we had no idea!! He has been getting in the nesting boxes and clucking .. Charcoal-Anna (my grey EE) would follow him into the nesting boxes and they would scratch around, sit for a while, change boxes.. this has been going on for at least a week. Today I was out collecting eggs and changing their water - when I noticed Foggy being even more diligent with Charcoal today... He was actually holding her down. Not aggressively. They would change boxes, she was putting bedding on her back.. i had a feeling today was the day!! After about an hour of standing out in the cold - watching through the back door (as to not be overly disruptive) they got out of the box and I went home.. (look at her little head poking out between his legs) HOWEVER - we do have an internet camera set up in our coop, so that we can check in on our flock.. so I watched from the house (on the computer screen) .. I was shocked to see them both back in the nesting box.. Foggy left her and I was busy reading an article on the internet - when I hear a PLOP! the distinct sound of an egg hitting the floor of the nesting box. I quickly looked and Charcoal was looking backwards.. when she finally moved I saw a tiny green egg.... I ran out to the coop as fast as I could.. (T shirt, shorts, 1 sock and boots - through 6 inches of snow..) And there it was! The most beautiful little egg I've ever seen!! A tiny green pullet egg!!
