    After waiting 9 months, my EE finally decided to lay her first egg. What a shock to not see a blue or green, but rather a yellow egg in the nest! Who knew!?![​IMG]

    You never know how much of the blue gene is left in EEs after many generations of crossing.
    Disappointing though, I suppose.

    Congrats!
    The yellow one your talking about is the one on lower left, right? Interesting to know since I just ordered 3 Araucana/Ameracauna among my 15 chicks order.

    It looks like a cream color.
