    Hi everyone. Just had to post and let you know that we got our first GREEN EGG today from one of our Easter Eggers!!!! We have three, but knew she was getting ready as she first got REALLY red in the face about 3 weeks ago, and then started to squat about one week ago. They just turned 19 weeks yesterday, so I am grateful!!!! That seems to be pretty early for an EE!!!!! I am so proud of her!!!! I didn't take a pic, but it is seafoam green!!![​IMG][​IMG]

    Congrats!![​IMG]

    We got our first green egg on Thanksgiving Day, and I was SOOO excited about it!! We now have 2 green eggs coming in from the young girls who have started to red up and start laying! [​IMG]
    We're waiting on the rest of the freeloaders and now all of them, including our teeny-tiny chicken who looks more like a wild sparrow than a chicken. Whoohoo, can't wait!

    Congrats once again!!

    wow that is eggciting! Aren't they the most wonderful things...? Everyone I show are amazed. I am still amazed everyone I get.

    sorry I took these at night so the color is washed out but they are quite green and brown...
