Green Eggs and Ham

It has happened, all seven of our chickens are laying eggs.  We were very excited to find that our Tiger-Striped Ameracauna is a pure-bred, as her eggs are green.  Only the pure-bred Ameracauna lay the blue or green eggs, so if we ever want to breed her with a pure-bred Ameracauna rooster, they will produce more little "Easter-Eggers".  Check out the green egg in the picture below; it's a light shade of green, but green it is.  And yes, I plan on eating some ham with that egg tomorrow for breakfast, just so I can say that I've had green eggs and ham.

  1. Oh how I love those green eggs, and the pun that goes with it. Great looking clutch you have there, good luck and happy urban farming.
