Ombré Egg

  1. I thought I'd share with you guys a odd egg one of my hens laid a few days ago. Why is it odd you may ask? Because it's ombré! :)

    That is truly awesome. Happy Easter. Almost looks try colored. May I ask what kind of hen made that? Good cluck in the future.
     

  4. Thanks. Happy Easter to you to! I never saw the hen lay it, but by the shape and texture I believe it was one of my White Rocks.

    That's great. Who would have thought. Chickens are amazing. We have 7 amerucanas can't wait to see what color eggs they produce. I posted picks on the amerucana club on this sight. Good Cluck in the future.
     

  6. That's will be a egg-citing day for you when they start laying!

    Egg-zactly. We are all very
    egg-cited for our new girls. Hoping to get blue cuckoo marans to get dark reddish brown eggs to add more colors. So my grand kids don't have to color the eggs with harmful stuff.
    Nature's own Easter egg's. Nice chirping with you.
