    So, a little bit of an update on the hen I thought was laying different colored eggs...urns out my Easter Egger, Pinky, lays brown eggs, not the blues I was hoping for. I won't hold it against her, after watching all she went through to show me her handiwork! My little black Frizzle, Sizzle, whom I was told would lay white eggs, is laying the tiniest little brown ones...I mean TINY!

    One day, everyone laying left me a gift!

    I love to see the simple differences in something so complex as an egg!

    My EE lays light brown eggs too! I was bummed out but she's consistently laying everyday so I can't really complain. I think I will get two more EE's this spring and hope I get more blues!
