The First Green Egg

We finally had our first beautiful green egg a few days ago.

It will join the other beautiful brown eggs.

This is Copper. 
She's the first of our egg layers.
Her eggs are a darker brown.

This is Blackberry and she lays a light brown egg.

Here's a look at the different color of eggs.
The top is the green layer, to the left is Copper's
and to the right is Blackberry's.

This is Sadie.
She's a green egg layer.

 And this is Bouffant.
She's also a green egg layer.
 And for now I don't know which one is laying the green egg.
They are both the same age, over 6 months old.
I guess time will tell.

Looks like we can now have green eggs and ham.

Psalm 143:10
Teach me to do Your will, for You are my God.
May Your gracious Spirit lead me on level ground.


  1. Bouffant is aptly-named. :-) Believe it or not, I blew out the contents of our first green egg and still have the shell, 8 years later. Thank you for sharing this at the HomeAcre Hop; I hope you'll join us again this Thursday.

    1. What a great idea. I might try that. Thanks for commenting.

  2. I think Sadie is your green egg layer. Bouffant appears to be a Silkie (black skin, turquoise earlobes and all) and they lay small, cream-colored eggs. She'll likely be a good mother hen for you some day.

    1. Thank you for letting me know. It just so happens I found that out this afternoon when I found a very small cream colored egg in the nest along with the green one. Thanks for commenting.

  3. Beautiful eggs and flock members! Thank you for sharing with the Clever Chicks Blog Hop!
