    She will most likely give you green or blue eggs. [​IMG]

    so that means she will still lay more eggs right? because i had her for 2 days and she haven't laid anything .. i bought her layer pallet and shes also eating grass but she keeps getting bullied by the barred rock i have

    You cannot reliably tell how old a hen is by just looking at her. In other words, you can't look at one of my two year old Ameraucanas and tell her apart from my four year olds, but big difference as far as laying ability most of the time between those two ages.

    When you move a hen, it's normal for her to quit laying for a short time till she gets used to her new surroundings.
