    Finally! My first olive egg! (upper left). [​IMG] I was happy that it is speckled. It was from a cross of an EE roo and my welsummer hen. I'm still waiting on one other possible olive layer. The other greenish egg is from my newest EE, and her egg is somewhat olive-ish, but not as dark.

    Quote:Thanks. The dark one is from some of alicefelldown's eggs. I am actually pleased that I didn't get olive with this hen, as I am loving the dark reddish color of these eggs. Didn't you hatch some from her also? When do you expect them to lay? I only ended out with 2 pullets from that hatch, and only one has laid so far. It should be soon for the other one...

    Very pretty wheaten OE, HappyMtn!

    I did hatch some from alicefelldown, Very nice looking birds, I think I ended up with 7-8 pullets. They still have a couple months to go but I am anxiously awaiting that day [​IMG]. I don't blame you, thats a very nice dark egg.
