    Roadrunner is my son's hen. He bought her back in July from our local feed store, labeled as an Ameraucana. All he really was a bird that would lay blue eggs. Looks like he got his wish after 5 months and a few days.

    We got home from church and I went to turn the hens into the yard when I spotted a the blue egg laying in the dirt on the floor of the run. I guess I need to teach the silly bird how to use a nest box.

    [​IMG] I hate to burst your bubble but if you got the hen from the feed store she is very likely an EE not Ameraucana. Congrats on the egg though!

    Quote:No problem, that bubble burst a while back when I got online here to read up on Ameraucanas.

    Okay I'm confused now. [​IMG] I was under the impresstion that EE and Americanas where the same. If not what is the difference? I have Americanas
