    What a wonderful suprise when I ventured out to the coop this evening. I had to work..... all day... ick! and when I arrived home I got 7 eggs.... the most yet. and one was the MOST perfect BABY BLUE color I've ever seen.

    I'm in heaven. I have a pink layer, blue layer, green layer and a mix of browns and white and creams.

    GC Maran on the upper right, the two green ones are from my EE. The blue ones are from my wheaten/blue wheaten hens, I have a Dellie egg there, a salmon Faverolle, a polish, Ancona, 3 types of leghorns (PW, LB and CAW), a Cinnamon Queen, a Barred Rock, a Speckled Sussex and a black sex link. Fun group. Variety is the spice of life.

    Within two years though, I imagine I will have only 4 breeds. B/B/S Ameraucanas, W/BW Ameraucanas, BCMarans and GCMarans. It's all I will have room for.
