    Another picture of Sarah (Blue EE)! I love her to pieces and she so cute and curious! 3E359073-BF36-4B64-AE4F-0E4F04E5913A.jpeg

    ~Age: Unknown, she was a rescue. Probably 1-3 years though.
    ~Egg color (if any): little blue eggs. Not bantam, but smaller than my other EE’s.
    ~Fun facts: she was an impulse buy. We saw a beautiful Easter Egger at the feed store and couldn’t resist! She’s bottom of the pecking order and is a little scruffy, but is a total sweetheart. She likes to go broody and sit in laps.


    ~Name: Lucille
    ~Age: Uh maybe 2 now?
    ~Egg color (if any): I don’t even know anymore. I insist they’re blue but my mom says green.
    ~Fun facts: When we got her her tail had been pecked off. This picture is from right after we got her because I don’t have any more recent good ones...

    Loving all the pretty birds!:love
    My EE are two of my favorites.

    I have Maude (on left), she’s about 1.5 years old, and lays light blue/slightly green tinted very large eggs! We’ve had her since she was two months old. She has a strict no-touching rule, but will gladly take treats from our hands!:lol:

    Then there’s Henrietta, age unknown, somewhere around a year? She also lays light blue eggs, but very small ones! We’ve only had her for about four months, but she’s a great little hen. She came to us very wild and ferocious, so we referred to her as “Henrietta hellion” for a while. Since then she has calmed down significantly and is about as crazy about treats as the rest of them. :lau

    Here are my EE girls! They are almost 6 months old and they have been laying now for 3 weeks! And doing a fantastic job! All our EEs lay green and blue eggs and I even get olive eggs as well!

    Eggs for the day :) The oblong pale egg was our White Orphington's first egg and most of our girls are laying for their first week! On her second day, she laid a beautiful brown egg and it was much bigger than the rest!!

    I love seeing all of these beautiful EEs and their gorgeous eggs. I still can’t believe what a miracle it is to get these presents every day from the nesting boxes. I love my chickens whether they lay eggs or not, but I really do get such a kick out of finding them, cooking them, or giving them away to neighbors. I NEVER feel this way about produce from our garden! :D

    I love the colorful eggs, too. There’s just something so fun about the mix of blues and browns! I’m at max chicken capacity for now, but at some point I still need an Olive egger and a white layer!

    I used to have about 20 EE’s but I gave them all away! (WORST MISTAKE EVER!!) So that’s why I got some EE eggs and hatched chicks! I missed my colorful egg basket each day!!

    i have no clue why, but ever since her sis died she has been very flight..:( She is very calm once you pick her up though!!! (she is probably WAY more friendly than the average chicken (especially for her young age) but i hold mine every day and am shocked how much 2 of them still are weary of me! (i also give them treats frequently...:oops:)
