    Just had to jump for joy when I saw one of my two EE's in the nest box this afternoon. She left me a pretty little light green present. Now if the other will just join the green egg party. I took pics, but my camera flashes too much and it just looks white. [​IMG]

    They're 5 months, 26 days, just for reference...

    Quote:They're McMurray babies. All 3 of my parents' McMurray EE's are laying green too. No browns from McMurray in my "vast" experience LOL!

    Congrats on your green egg! Mine just started yesterday!
    Try taking the pic of your egg in bright natural light without a flash...I'm not a photographer by any means, but that is how I got mine to show the green color...oh, and if you have any brown eggs, put them beside of it and it will contrast nicely.

    Thanks for the reference, too. Mine were born on July 3rd, so guess they will start hopefully soon, too.
