that beautiful egg was wonderful green color! I was begining to become concered that was going to be a brown layer but to my relief it wasn't. I honestly believed with my luck that it would have been the same color that my Buff has began to lay. We were over at our neighbors house showing them the first two that the Buff had layed when she layed it. It's such an exciting time in the chickens life to be a chicken owner to see how of their mannerisms begin to change and the whole squating thing when you walk around them an such. It's just incredible! We went over to my Moms' house today to show her and then over to the craft store. We had bought a basket for collecting and was telling the cashier what it was for. She didn't believe us at first so we went to the car, decided to go back in there and show her the 3 tiny brown eggs from the Buff, next to the one bright green egg from the Ameraucana, next to a hen egg from a RIR, next to a store bought white egg. LOL The look on her face was priceless! She sure as @^$% knew we weren't bluffing at that point and proceded to stop looking at us like we were insane... Starving as we were, you know 'cause we haven't actually eaten any of these eggs just show them off to every single person we encounter, we stopped by an A&W and had to show the kid at the drive thru window who's eyes wouldn't fit back inside of his head when I handed him the credit card and opened up a 6-pack of eggs.. random... He asked if it tasted the same and did I actually dye it, or did the chicken? Hehe it's funny the looks you get when someone has to digest that a chicken lays a green egg. People start wondering if it comes with a free side of ham. And a strange cat to serve it to me... I can't wait to get over it and come back down to Earth but for the time being I feel like a kid. Seriously, if I had known that chickens would have brought me this much pleasure and such a great sence of common well being, I would have been doing this years ago. Our chooks make me happy.
