    Beautiful blue egg. My EEs should start laying next month - BSLs just started laying this week. Can't wait to see if I'm gonna get some blue or green eggs. I keep telling my kids, who keep asking me WHY I got chickens - that it is so that the grandkids can go out and have their own personal Easter egg hunt when they're here. My kids' response is always: "Mom - you don't have any grandkids". I say "Yeah....hint hint".

    So pretty!!

    My EEs are only a couple months old, so I prolly won't get much in the way of eggs until spring.

    Congrats! It really is a beauty!!

    Dave, mine aren't EE, they're the Ameraucana breed, but since this is my first one from them, I really dont know for sure. I have a young Ameraucana rooster and he's mating his girls, so I put it right in the bator to see. I'll be able to confirm it in a few days; that is, IF I can see in it, LOL. Really, I should be able to candle just fine since I have a 300 watt projector as my candler. I'm just glad Charlotte's are the true blue they're supposed to be for the breed. Now, if Miss Silver's will be just as nice, I'll be very happy.
