    It's very hard to capture the green/blue colors on camera.....and folks monitors/screen can be different too.
    I would call those 'barley blue' and 'kinda green'.

    Ha ha, that's a good description because they are both very pale in person too.

    My first started at 23 weeks and my other EE still has some time to go.

    So true - I get so frustrated trying to get pictures of my "pretty eggs" --- the pictures never do them justice.

    My EE started laying a week ago. The first few we very green now they are green with a hint of blue. We are still waiting on our other EE to start laying. They are apart of our first flick and all hatched March 15.

    @Alexandra33 has some beautiful pictures of her green and blue easter egger eggs. I am so jealous of how gorgeous they are! Maybe she'll share them with everyone, although it might make others jealous as well [​IMG].

    Above: An olive-green EE egg along with a blue egg from our Cream Legbar for comparison. We might have an EE who lays blue, but her first couple eggs haven't exactly revealed specifically what color they'll be.

    This came from one of our EEs. Green with a blue swirl. Pretty cool, huh? [​IMG]

    The EE egg on the right isn't actually olive like it appears, but a nice mint green.
