    I have a baby that came from a green egg and its legs are pink. Does this mean it won't lay green eggs?
     
  2. Not that I am aware of. I have a green legged hen who lays brown eggs. All the hens that I have hatched from a blue egg lays blue eggs. Good luck to you! [​IMG]

    No. I have two olive green legged girls laying blue eggs, 2 beige/pink legged girls laying green eggs and one beige/pink legged girl laying light brown. Good luck on your green eggs! [​IMG]

    Easter Eggers are mutts, and come in all different colors, legs included. If you got a hen from that green egg, she probably will lay greens also, but you won't know for sure until she lays... Good luck!
