    YAY...2 out of 5 of mine just layed today too! Isn't it so exciting to find green eggs instead of plain brown? It kind of mixes things up a little bit.[​IMG]

    Ooh very nice! I can't wait to get some EEs. What are the other two eggs that you have in the picture? I am also really curious about the pink eggs-do they look really pink next to an ordinary brown egg? What does the hen that lays it look like?

    Quote:Thank you! It was pretty neat to find them in there.

    The two big brown ones are laid by my Golden Comets, red sex links. They are lovely sweet birds and prolific layers. They started a full 7 weeks before the EEs did.

    The pink one is laid by an EE. I am not sure which one. It looks like a light tan egg with a pink cast to it. It's a very pretty egg. EEs can lay green, blue, brown or pink eggs, I'm not sure what other types of chickens (if any) lay pink eggs.
