    Went out to the coop this afternoon to check on eggs and had a surprise. Jackie (use to be Jack) one of my Ameraucanas layed her first egg. It was a light green. I hope her sister Jill lays one soon. After seeing nothing but brown eggs the green one was a little shocking, but I can get use to it.

    We got our first green egg a few weeks before christmas I had no idea who laid it since we have 4 americana's - but the one I thought was a roo - laid down in front of us while cleaning the coop/run on christmas morning and out came the green egg !! so we have now been calling her Christmas LOL ( could not think of anything else to call her )

    congrats and enjoy the egg - its like getting Easter eggs every morning so fun.

    sure as soon as I get the pictures back I will post a pic for you - sometimes I look at her and still think " that has got to be a roo " and than she lays an egg and looks at me like " nope you dope I am a hen LOL "

    I always wanted an Easter chicken that must be so weird green and blue eggs.

    I am happy with mine though beautiful brown. Got my first on New Years day.
