The last few hours Meko had been pacing my patio, and was much more vocal than she usually was. She was going to lay soon, I knew it. My 2 RIRs went through this process before they laid. And just an hour ago I observed Meko in the nesting box throwing shavings on her back. I tried not to get my hopes up, thinking she was just praticing since my RIRs practiced nesting before their first eggs. I went out there a few minutes later to give them a frozen water bottle to cool themselves off on. Meko was standing up in the box, panting, staring blankly under her. Everyone else was staring at her too. I new she had laid. My girls have never seen a light colored egg before. So I thought "That's cool" and I went to collect my supposidly "green" egg. As soon as I bend down and look in the box, I spotted a glowing sky blue ball. I thought "Meko....laid a blue egg?" I was told by several people that Meko would probably lay a green egg, since she was one of the more "common EE colors" and had very green feet. But I guess she proved that theory wrong! I might just get a green egg from my white EE that has blue feet, lol! There's northing like the feeling of discovering your first blue egg. Meko is 22 weeks old. Here's Meko, taken when she was a couple weeks younger. Compared to a freshly laid RIR egg.
