    My americauna is the same age as my Rhode Island red, and Danish Brown leghorn that layed their second eggs today. However, I believe it possible that my Americauna might have layed one today too, unless the Danish Brown Leghorn "Rebella" layed late yesterday....... Here is a picture of the coloring of my americauna. Could she have layed a brown egg?

    A true Ameraucana will only lay blue eggs, however if she's an Easter a Egger I hear they can lay almost any color! May be that she's a late bloomer, some lay earlier than others.

    Your pretty girl pictured is an Easter Egger and, yes, could have produced a brown egg. Your brown leghorn, if the breed ID is correct, will produce white eggs.
