    Ever since I found out there were chickens that lay colored eggs I've been wanting to have some of my own. I know own two Americaunas? (lay blue eggs) a Americauna? Rooster and now a Lace Wing Wyandotte and a Buff Orpington. 4 hens and a Roster.

    The question marks are because I 'think' they are Americaunas.

    They all have names and they now come running when I pull out my whistle and blow it three times. [​IMG]

    I had no idea they would so much fun.

    Welcome! yes, they are fun. I think the blue shell chickens are auracunas, and the easter eggers are ameracunas, or something like that but less scrambled. there are a lot of threads on here about the differences. You can breed chickens that will give you olive green eggs too. so, the fun just keep coming! [​IMG]

    I would think your Ameraucana is an Easter egger unless you bought them from a breeder. your Wyandotte is either a silver laced or gold laced.

    Welcome to BYC! You have come to the coolest place on the internet for chicken knowledge.

    I started with chickens last summer and the people of BYC have been great. This year I have tried hatching and buying chicks for even more chickeny joy. Please visit my BYC Page for my blog links that you may find informative or amusing.

    I have been wanting Easter Egg chickens too! But my next goal is to get French Black Copper Marans for their chocolate eggs.
