Blue eggs!

Our rainbow of eggs-fresh from the nest.

Today we received our first blue egg. No, its not a robin's egg, its a blue egg fro ma chicken. We have about ten ameraucana hens. They are a unique breed derived from the Chilean breed the araucana. The hens have a very distinct look, featuring elaborate patterns and cheek feathers. Below is one of the ladies.

  1. Easter Eggers are great for production layers. I have a few around that are also pets. I used to have one that was very similar to the one you have pictured.

    I also have a small flock of True Ameraucanas. These lay as well, but are breed to the APA standard and in standardized colors(blue, black, and splash).
