    I´d love to see this as an official and surviving thread for pics on blue eggs later in the summer, my blue layers are only a day to a month old. [​IMG]

    this is all I could find as I am using my Iphone with the Photobucket app and I can't find her good pics. Boo standing with Barbie(BA). Have no idea what they're looking at.

    I'd love to show you some blue eggs- but my first Ameraucana to start laying lays WHITE eggs! [​IMG]

    I'm going to pick up some EEs from HBuehler today [​IMG] It'll be 3 months before my other girls start laying, and I can't wait!!!!

    Bottom Blue was from Townline Aracauna hen. Lays them SOOOOO blue.
    Others are so light compared to hers. (pic is on counter top in sunlight)

    cthrash1: It SHOULD'VE had three yolks, just a meager two. Impressive, isn't it? That Ethel is a superstar in my book!
