I have one Ameraucana hen and she’s with that youngest batch . . unless you count the ones that just hatched but she’s in with the Anconas, the Buff Lace Polish,some of “Wilbur’s kids”, which are Dominiques from our older chickens, one black cochin that I’m still not sure if it’s a rooster or a hen, and a few others that we hatched early last summer. I think they hatched in mid to late May and I knew they were going to start laying soon. Vince fixed up their nesting boxes before I left to go MO and today I went out to check for eggs and myone Ameraucana was sitting on the nest. I just went back out there and there was a greenish egg and a white egg so two of those chickens laid their first eggs today.
The egg is much greener in real life but it’s definitely from the Ameraucana. The smaller white egg on the right top is the other new egg. I believe the Buff Polish lay white eggs, as do the Anconas. Everyone else in that coop will lay brown eggs, I think!
The very dark brown egg on the left side of the photo is from the Marans. We now have white, cream, tan, brown, dark brown and green eggs! I’m a happy chicken mama!
