    I got two EEs last week, one laing hen and a pullet. So far i colected five eggs. Two turquoise and three baby blue ones. First was turquoise, than baby blue, than turquoise and so on. I was wondering if it possible that they came from one hen? Or both of my EEs are laying?
    thank you

    Eggs do not change color. The can lighten as the laying cycle goes on, but they do not change color.

    I would imagine you have two birdies layiing.
