I have two pullets I hatched last year that have taken forever to reach point of lay. They've been driving me crazy! One is my own multi-generational mix, a white sport throwback who basically looks like a pure white Ameraucana--big fluffy beard and muffs, slate legs, etc. I've been so wanting to see what color eggs she lays. The second is a blue frizzled EE mix. She's not my breeding, she hatched from shipped eggs. But still, I like her genetics and wanted to see what color egg shes got for me to play with..... I think they both started laying today, and of course I have no idea which is which. But, they're blue/green, so I'm happy and have something to work with. I can always pull one to a separate pen for a few days and see what happens. I'm hoping the blue bird lays the darker, brighter egg, but knowing the breeding of the white bird I think it may be her. Since she's a sport color, it will be fun to breed her and see what her babies come out as. Pics of today's haul. Oh, and the single Marans pullet I kept from last year has started laying also! Love this time of year. Oh, the huge light egg is a duck egg--no empathy pains for a chicken .
