    I just recieved 3 new hens i gave one away which to me looked like a buff orpington but after 3 days of my new girls getting here i found 2 pink eggs and 1 blue. Now i hear people say that easter eggers SOMETIMES lay pink eggs but these girls constantly lay them thats pretty much all they lay could they be true ameraucanas or aruacanas one of them does have muffs and a beard but the other one doesnt.

    Whatever color a hen lays, it won't change. It might get darker or lighter, but it won't change from blue to pink. I doubt they are true ameraucanas and aruacanas unless they came from someone who breeds them and I'm betting you would know if that were the case. Can you post some pictures?

    some EE's do lay nice blue eggs though
