    I was so excited to see 3 eggs today. We have had a black sex link laying for 2 months. Then I had 2 BO start and they were gotten by predators.
    Finally my EE "Blue" started laying last week and has a blue egg. Today my other EE, Henna laid a egg with more green. I am so happy to get some color variation out of them. We will have to see how the color goes as they get a little older.

    Congrats! [​IMG] Colored eggs are always more exciting than the average brown and white, in my opinion.

    Oll! My one EE started about a month ago, and she lays blue-green eggs. My other laid her first today, a nice brown one, and surprisingly big. YAY for us!!

  6. SWEET! Congrats! And oh, go get another couple to replace the one eaten by the predator. It'll make you and the others feel better. [​IMG]

    Congrats! Don't you just love the way the multicolored eggs look together in the carton? [​IMG]

    There's also a lot of color variety even from one brown egg-layer to the next. I just love it and can't wait for my brown girls to start.

    edited for brevity, got too long winded LOL

    Quote:One of my EE's was hatched March 1 and the other one around April 1. They are both laying about a month now.

    The rest of my flock (a wellie, a BR, and a RIR) hatched in early to mid April, and none of them are even thinking about laying any eggs yet. We've gotten frustrated, but I think we've pretty much come to terms with them holding out until spring.
