    I have been waiting on my four true Ameraucanas to start laying they are 37weeks old.. Tues. I got my first egg from them... a small perfectly formed egg, that was the palest blue--almost white--but just a hint of blue...Well, Wed. and today I went to gather eggs and found a beautiful blue egg--same shape and size but really blue. Could this be the same hen?? OR do you think I have at least two who have started? Each day, I have been almost 'running' to gather eggs to see how many colored eggs they have laid.. I am so excited, so many colors for my egg basket..

    I'm not sure if their egg color changes- but it is possible if she is just starting to lay. I have an EE girl and she lays consistently pale blue eggs. I have another one who has not laid yet- she is a newly acquired and I think still adjusting. Hoping she lays a darker blue egg! [​IMG]

    I think you have two hens that are laying. I've always been told the egg color cannot change.
