I feel a little silly to celebrate eggs so much - but I had to share what just happened. I've been out of town for the past week. My chicken-sitter let me know that one of my EE's started laying - a pretty blue egg. Then the other chicken-sitter who took care of them yesterday and this morning told me that there was a green egg. I figured it was the same chicken - the color just looked different to the two different sitters. The first sitter put the eggs he gathered in our refrigerator. The sitter from yesterday and this morning took home the eggs she gathered. So I got home this afternoon - and in my refrigerator I had seven white eggs and two blue eggs. Then I checked the coop a few minutes ago, and right there in the nest box was a beautiful light green egg. I'm THRILLED that one of my EEs is laying green eggs. The colors don't come through very well in the photograph. There is a white egg in between the two blue eggs and the one green egg. Now - if my two brown egg layers will only start laying - and the other two EEs, too!
