Someone laid a pretty rose/purple egg for me today. Valentines gift early.
Wow that is beautiful!!
Thank you! It came out of nowhere! I hope she does it again, whoever it was. I have a couple ideas.
Never seen that before, love to see the hen that did that.
Thank you. That makes two of us I could see it looked somewhat different when I took it out of the nest, it being the only egg, but when I put it in the carton with the others is when the color of it really popped
That egg color would start another fad. What breeds are your suspects? I'm assuming an EE.
Thank you. Well I have 6 total. The oldest three (by only a few weeks) were from a clutch of supposed EE. Only one of three lays a green egg. The other two pale. Those two also dont have any EE qualities to them and their eggs are pale, but the green egger is Patridge with dark legs, has a fifth toe, and feathered top hat. The other 3 are two red sex links and a Buff Orp. I'm thinking it could be Roadrunner, the only one with a blue gene, but it could be any of them. Hope she does it again.
One of my light brahmas throws a similar color.
That is a stunning egg color, all right! I want one!
Neat. Hope I get another for sure. Hope I figure out who it is too since I maybe thinning the flock this year
