    So about a week ago I found a stray hen wandered into my flock. I grabbed her and kept her in quarantine since. This morning I went to check on her and found an egg; she's already paying her keep. [​IMG] Any idea's what she is? I've never had a chicken that laid green eggs; it's pale green.

    congrats on your new lady. [​IMG] She appears to be an EE mix of some kind. Somehow the only strays who venture through here are cats. [​IMG]

    Your a lucky duck. I have a rumpless tufted Araucana that is feathering out that color and was told it was a roo cause of the color. I have renewed hope again. At least till he crows. I would love for him to be a girl and be that color.
