    My First little egg!!!!!
    It is a tiny little blue green beauty.
    I am shocked that one of my EE' s was the first to lay. I just knew my Partridge Rock, Lucy would be first. I think it was Bertha, cause she was acting kinda weird this morning.
    It is so tiny and cute. It was not in a nesting box but on some straw I have in the coop.
    I am so happy.

    Pretty egg!!! I hope one of my EE's (her name is Bertha too) is the first to lay if it's going to be a pretty lil egg like that.

    Congratulations! My two blue Ameraucana girls are about to turn 19 weeks old Friday. One has a pretty red comb, the other just behind her. Hopefully, not long till blue eggs!

    Those EEs can surprise you! Last year my Honeybelle (RIP) was the first one to lay! I have a new batch of 3 EEs and 4 Ameraucanas gearing up! Can't wait to see what color I get!

    Congrats to you! That is a pretty eggie!
