    First let me say I have NO new hens. All of my girls will be about a year old in March. To this point I have gotten brown eggs, speckled eggs, cream eggs, and white eggs.

    Yesterday I went to collect eggs and I had a blue/green egg! What the heck? I have one EE hen and one EE Rooster. How is it after almost a year I have a blue/green egg?!

    Could it be possible the EE hen just started laying? I know it takes them longer to lay and a year wouldn't be no surprise.

    Do you know for sure that your EE hen has laid an egg before?

    Hmm...there was somebody on here posting about her easter egger who only layed about two eggs a year. Maybe there's a similar situation here? Or maybe she's just a really late layer.

    No I ave 12 hens, so this may very well be her first egg? I assumed she was laying brown eggs........guess not. How fun!
