    My Easter Egger pullet laid her first egg this morning! It looked blue when I first picked it up, but after washing it, it is a deep olive green! The photo does not show the color correctly, no matter how many photos I took lol She is 5 months and 1 day old (22 weeks exactly!) So does this make her an Olive Egger?? Like I said, it is a much deeper green than my cell phone photo can accurately show.

    Now all 4 of my hens are laying! They don't seem to realize it is the end of the year, or the heat lamp that is always on in the coop is sufficient lighting for them to still think its spring.
