    These are the very first eggs we've gotten since I started raising chickens again.
    Brown eggs = White Laced Wyandottes
    Green eggs = Americaunas
    White Eggs = Acona

    I'd really like to get some chickens that lay pink, blue, and olive eggs.

    That's interesting. The books say RIRs lay brown eggs. I guess it might be hit or miss. I had Production Reds before, and they laid brown eggs.

    Here's what's in my fridge.

    The spotted egg on top actually has a purple tinge to it and the spots look more purple than brown.

    I have all hatchery EEs, Wellies and SLWs.

    Your welsummers are almost as dark as my black copper marans eggs. Nice!
