    My EE and EE/BA crosses have all laid green eggs. The crosses laid olive eggs.

    I was just going to ask about this same topic. Glad I did a search first.

    Today, I just got my first egg. I am 90% sure it came from my EE. It was light brown.:eek:

    So, either I am wrong about which bird it came from, or the EE is so much of a mutt that green/blue is not showing through. I have no idea what type of a mix she is.
