finally we have definitive proof that at least one of the ameraucanas is not a rooster.

finally we have definitive proof that at least one of the americaunas is not a rooster.

all of the other girls from our new flock of backyard chickens have been laying for weeks, but no blue eggs from the ameraucanas. we were beginning to think they might be roosters ( though they were lacking other very obvious rooster traits ) or they were doing a good job of hiding or eating their eggs.

but, whoohoo, today we had a surprise in the nesting box!

they don’t taste different but for some reason having blue eggs in the fridge adds a little more fun to the cooking routine.
