    I have a great mystery! 3 chickens, 4 egg days, and no blue eggs

    This is my first backyard chicken experience. We have 3 pullets a Rhode Island Red, Silver Laced Wyandotte, and "Americauna"

    This wednesday we got our first eggs. Three eggs in one day - but no blue eggs. I wasn't sure if I had overlooked an egg or two or if they had indeed all laid on the same day.
    Thursday - just one beautiful brown egg.
    And today is the biggest mystery of all - this morning at 6:30, no eggs. By lunch there were 3 eggs - each a slightly different color. Then, this evening I was so surprised to find yet another egg. So that is 4 eggs from 3 chickens in less than 12 hours. How common is this?

    Also - NO blue/green easter eggs. Do we have 2 power layers on our hands and one holding out or will we never have colorful eggs.

    Here are our girls:[​IMG]

    These are their first eggs:[​IMG]

    And these are the eggs laid this morning [​IMG]
    I don't have a photo of today's 4th egg.

    If anyone knows who is laying which eggs or what is going on here - please let me know!!

    Hi! Is it an easter egger/americana? If so, they will lay either blue, green, or "pink". I am thinking yours is laying the "pink" egg. As far as 4 eggs in one day; I am thinking that you may have missed one from Thursday. Do you use pine shavings in your box? We do, and there have beens several times where I thought I got them all-only to rustle through and find one buried. Just my thoughts on this....it will be interesting to see what happens this next.
