    I said the above b/c I was told I have an Ameraucana but after reading this post may just have an EE... makes not difference to me. My question is, I've seen list of different colored eggs they can lay, will my one little girl lay a variety of diff colored eggs or does each Ameraucana/EE have just one color they lay? [​IMG]

    I'm pretty certain they lay the same hue of egg their whole lives. Also, I think Amaraucana and EE are the same thing.

    A chicken will lay the same color of egg all the time. It may lighten up a little, but the color will be the same. [​IMG]

    they will lay a color that will only change a slight shade over time. Unless you got from a breeder, you have an EE...
    and no, EE is not the same as Ameraucana, hatcheries don't sell true ameraucana

    I have "Ameracaunas" that turned out to be EEs. [​IMG] One of them lays long, olive green eggs. The other two lay roundish, very pale blue, almost white eggs.
