Sortof a pretty blue/green color that layers over the “normal” color.. so I have tinted brown and white eggs. Of course, on the inside, they are just normal like any other. The only problem with fresh eggs is that they are really hard to peel. The ones in the store are a lot older by the time we get them home. I try to keep track of my eggs so that I only use “older” ones for boiling.

The rule of thumb seems to be 5 hens no roosters under these settings. http://www.backyardchickens.com has lots of advice, mostly.
Jaden wonderful coop. Loved your DH’s discription on the above site. I love it when “My pet makes me breakfast.”

They layed well until about a month ago when the days grew shorter. I looked in the nesting box this morning and there it was a beautiful bluish egg from one of the Ameracana hens. I picked it up and straight to the kitchen range to fix the first egg of this new year. It was the best, I can really tell a difference from the store bought eggs that I have been using the last month. My chickens are free range and they are fed organic soy-free layer feed. Congratulations to your hen for giving you the first egg to enjoy!!!!!!
