    My 1 ameraucana or EE pullet (not really sure what she is - I bought her off craigslist) finally started to lay about 2 weeks ago and I got 4 blue eggs to date. Yesterday morning she was in the nest box when I left for work. I checked when I got home and had an egg from the BR and a pale, pinkish egg. Could she have changed egg colors? I have 4 golden comets that I don't think are ready yet but maybe the egg was from a GC?

    No, if she laid blue eggs to start that is what she lays. I would imagine that it was from one of your GC's. How old are the GC's?

    I think around 16/17 weeks.I'm glad to know the others are catching up in the egg department but I guess I won't be getting an abundance of blue eggs
