We've waited a while for the Chicks to start laying eggs. In the last few weeks we've gone from three eggs a day from the old Hens to about fourteen a day! When the Chicks really get going, we should get about thirty eggs a day. But, what I've been waiting for is a pastel Ameraucana egg! It's why I got the breed, aside from the fact that they are beautiful hardy birds, because they lay gorgeous blue/green eggs! The eggs are ultimately no different in taste or nutrition to any other egg, and you don't get the shell served on your plate with your eggs, but still I had a yen for some pretty eggs.
