    My girls just started laying a couple weekends ago... for the first week I got an egg a day... then I started getting 2 and for the past few days I was getting 3. Yesterday, we got a 4th egg and it is olive-colored.

    We have a BA, lt brahma, delaware and EE.

    The other eggs have been sort a medium sized light brown, and a slightly larger lt brown/pinkish color.

    Which one laid the olive green one?

    X2 EE can lay a range of colors. One of my EE lays light greenish eggs, the other lays light brown eggs.

    Easter Egger. They lay a range of green, blue, olive, sometimes brownish eggs.
