    The one OE pullet that I hatched from your eggs earlier this year (the rest got snatched by a skunk earlier this year [​IMG] ) laid me some beautimous colored olive eggs in the last 3 days [​IMG] She finally decided it was time... and promptly picked a corner in the goat shed [​IMG] [​IMG] I went in to feed the goats Monday afternoon, and there was the purtiest green egg I've ever seen!!! [​IMG] Today, I even caught her in the act, and got to watch her grumble and push [​IMG] Here is her 3rd egg, next to a 1yo hens large brown egg. [​IMG] I can only hope my home brewed OE pullets lay as green an egg as this girl.

    I LOVE the green eggs! No one really talks about them here but I am so impressed with the degrees of green....course, it's my favorite color! You have a beautiful color there! [​IMG]
