|First Marans pullet egg with some of my Wyandotte eggs.|
Followed very shortly on Saturday with a white pullet egg. I was unsure of who laid this egg, but narrowed it down to two possible suspects. My Araucana or my black crossbreed.

This morning [Easter Sunday] I found four eggs in the coop, two of them being from my pullets. And excitingly one of them was green!
No I don't have an alien chicken! Araucana's lay eggs with shells have a green-blue tinged shell. I had a chat with a knowledgeable chicken friend and the white egg was most likely her egg as well as sometimes they start off laying very pale/white eggs.

So for Easter this year, instead of chocolate eggs, I got real eggs!
