Green egg, no ham.

Ayinnanku has started laying! I have been saying for weeks that the young hens would start aaaany minute now and finally one of them has come through for me.

Ayinnanku being an Ameraucana, a breed which is a cross between the blue-egg-laying Araucana and any American breed, we weren’t really sure what color egg would turn up when she started. As it turns out, she must be crossed with a brown egg layer, because what we got was a lovely pale olive-green egg. Behold!

A pale olive green egg with smudges of dirt lays on a piece of white paper.  It is easily the prettiest egg ever.  No, really.
