The girls are not laying very frequently now that the days are so short. I still get one or two eggs most days. Today I was THRILLED to find my first bluish green egg!
Of course, I had to photograph and share such a momentous happening! I am not sure which of my Americaunas laid the egg. Their pea combs haven't gotten big and red like the other girls' rose combs.

Is in from Matilda?
Or did Madeline lay the egg!
Photos are from a month or two ago. Madeline is pretty hard to photograph since she rarely stays in one place very long. She is afraid of the other hens since they give her a quick peck to keep her in her place. Matilda stays away from them too, but she is not quite so hysterical about it!
Y'all Come back,


  1. I think it was Matilda. She looks pretty proud...

  2. I'm laughing at Bobbi's comment, cause just as I was opening the comments, I thought - I think it's Matilda! ha! Great minds think alike. I love those little blue eggs.

  3. Ooooh, that's a pretty one - congratulations!! My egg layers have really slowed down...

    Happy Holidays!

  4. It's really hard to guess who is laying what unless you catch them in the act, isn't it? My Americaunas have never had much of a red comb either except for Sarge, but she has a larger comb, (not a pea-comb) and she doesn't have the green egg trait like the others. They are really odd but beautiful birds!


Howdy, Thanks for dropping in. I love to hear from you!
