Dark Green Eggs
Remember these little ones that we hatched
from our own eggs this spring?
They are all grown up and laying eggs themselves now.
Some of them are laying dark green eggs!
Our New Hampshire Reds lay brown eggs and our Americanas lay light green ones. We thought all the new pullets were New Hampshire Reds. But they surprised us!
They look like Reds but must have come from the green eggs we hatched out and that would make them crossbred Reds/Americanas.
What's amazing is how dark the green color is. Our pure Americana green eggs are much lighter like the one in the bottom right. We aren't big fans of crossbreeds but I do like the dark green eggs.
Be joyful in hope.
