I know all you experienced chicken people will think I'm crazy with this blog post.
But I know what I saw!
I wouldn't believe it unless I saw it myself.
Previously, my pullet, Jade, laid light green eggs.

I watched Jade lay a light green egg with my own eyes in January.
She's been laying green eggs since she started laying, which was about the beginning of the year. She's still a pullet, and doesn't give us eggs every day. And there are a few other pullets in the flock who are laying green eggs, too.
But I KNOW I saw Jade lay a light green egg.
And then early this morning, I watched Jade lay an egg. In an empty nest box. I watched it come from her rear and thump on the floor of the nestbox.
As soon as it was laid, when Jade was still standing tall in the nestbox (they stand up when they lay), I grabbed the still-wet egg.
And to my amazement it was light brown!
I didn't think it was possible for both green and brown eggs to come from the same hen!
It's just amazing to me!
Jade was hatched from a light brown egg, if that makes any difference.

Such drama in the coop these days!
