    Last week I was thrilled to find some tiny bantam eggs! Yesterday I noticed one of my Aracaunas was sitting in a nest. But then she laid her egg out in the pen and it was broken! But it was green! Yay! At least I know I have a chicken that lays green eggs...if only she learns to lay it in a nest!!

    GRATZ on your first egg. Hopefully you'll get some to fry up soon

    My two EE's just started laying too. Both lay green eggs but, like yours are not using the nest boxes. I have taken them to them when the eggs are in there from the others and still they have their favorite corner to lay in. I figured if they keep to the same spot it's not to bad.
