    Yea, finally my first green egg. Even DH is excited about that. He's not been moved by much of this chicken stuff. He does admit that the chickens are fun to watch, and he does sneak treats too them, but the whole egg thing, and hatching thing, are nothing to him, he only sees them as money or too much trouble.

    So I called him about the green egg, and he even said, You've got to show me that one.

    I was thinking I wasn't going to get any. A lot of my girls are laying now, I get 6 eggs a day, and a new one started yesterday, and this one today, so I'll be getting even more soon.

    I've had an EEer's squating for 2 weeks now, so I just thought I'd get just a bunch of brown eggs. But NO! I'm got a green one. Oh happy day. [​IMG]

    Did I mention that I'm getting totally over run with eggs? I put out notices to the neighbors that they where for sale now, hope they start calling. Might have to get them as Christmas presents. [​IMG]

    Congratulations! I LOVE EEs and Ameraucanas. Collecting green and blue eggs never gets old. Actually, I am still in awe of the whole process--to me, an egg is like a little miracle, no matter what the color!
