    Isn't that fun!!!

    We have two EEs and the first laid a cream colored egg [​IMG] So we were delighted when the second finally started laying. She lays a beautiful mint colored egg.

    Hope the others lay great colors for you!! [​IMG]

    Can someone tell a "newbie" what an EE is? And how do I get one? I'd love a few green eggs.

    Thanks

    Quote:Easter Egger, often wrongly referred to by hatcheries as Auracaunas or Ameracaunas.

    I wish I could post a picture-my kids wasted the little juice I had left in my camera...

    I was amazed that her first egg was a good sized one-about the size of the large ones you buy in the store.

    I didn't know there were even any eggs out there because one of my other non laying girls (not yet) decided she should try and hatch them!! [​IMG] Yay, my chickens are finally figuring out what they're supposed to do!!

    I'm eggcited for you! I just got my first green/blue eggs in the last month and I'm still excited every day when I go out and pick them from the nest box. I was thrilled that both my EE's are giving me the colored eggs.
