    Hi I am new to this forum. I was looking on google for an answer to a question and found the forum. I raise chickens as part of my farm (I raise nubian and nubian/boer cross goats) and to sell eggs. I like to have lots of different breeds around so that the egg cartons are colorful when filled with eggs. I just got 20 hen chicks and an excited to see what they look like when they are grown. Always have a few banties running around too just for more fun. My question: when I was on craigslist someone had a listing for EE roosters I was wondering what the EE stood for? thanks

    thank you. my ameracauna's are my favorite regular sized hens. this years hens are producing more blue eggs than green ones like last years hens. I have yet to get a pink one, unless they look more like pale brown eggs and I am mistaking them for light brown eggs.

    Yes, it's easy to mistake pink for light brown. I always have a dozen or so EE's running around. Mine lay only blue & green though.
