    Was told these 3 were Ameraucana's. They were bought from a hatchery and i adopted them. I am aware they are EE's. I would like to know what the lighter ones color is called and if they will lay blue eggs. They hatched in April and still no eggs as far as I know unless they are laying brown like some of my other girls. No squatting yet either. Although 1 was checking out the nesting boxes yesterday

    This is the light colored one. single combkind of green/slate colored legs

    I cannot see the comb on teh first bird-but she appears to be an EE--if they have pea combs -they all should lay colored eggs-should being the key word...

    Getting a first egg from an Easter Egger is a bit like opening a Christmas present. You see the pretty package but you just don't know what's inside until you open it. [​IMG] In my experience, Easter Eggers are often slow to mature, like Ameraucanas. I have EE's and Ameraucanas that aren't laying at 30-weeks!

    The first one you will get a brown egg from-the other two -colored eggs--They have pea combs-one just has a bigger raised one...

    EE's are created in many different ways-when they hatch-all straight combed ones will produce brown eggers-all pea combs-colored eggs. There is less than a 3% chance of getting a colored egg laid from a hen with a straight comb-but it does happen...
