    I bought this little hen with some Easter eggers. She looks different than the rest... No "cheek puffs" and a skinny little neck. Will she still lay a green egg? Just wondering! These are my first chickens...15 weeks and no eggs yet. I'm hoping for colorful eggs!

    She appears to be an EE - understand that not all EE lay blue/green eggs. Since in reality that are crossbreds not all inherit the blue/green egg gene.

    I didn't know that they didn't all lay blue/green. Thank you. I guess I will find out what color eggs in a month or two!

    She could lay anything. Blue, green, brown, tan, white, pink. Hence the Easter Egger name.
