    i'm ssoo excited.. this one is such a pretty blue.. i was assuming i'd get shades of green from them, the blue is unexpected and pretty...

    Nice egg! Oh, I so want a blue one! I have one EE that lays the olive color and the other EE hasn't started laying yet. I hope I get a blue one! But with my luck it probably will be green.[​IMG]

    they say the pea comb is linked to the blue egg gene... i have 6 EE pullets.. 2 have taller combs and they are laying a pinkish/terracotta/tan color egg.. and my othe 4 have the smaller peacomb, and so far 2/4 have the blue egg gene.. 1 is a light olive, and now this one is blue.. it's almost green, but i still consider it in the blue, if i ahd a green to put next to it you'd see the blue more... can't wait for my lucy to lay her greens again and these otehr 2 to start so i can see their colors...
