These are Croad Langshan eggs, a breed I don't think you have in the US. I also got this colour out of a Wheaten Marans X Australian Langshan

Uh oh, now I'm in trouble.  Everyone knows I MUST have every possible egg color there is.  So do I have to fly to Australia and smuggle some back or just find someone to do it for me?????? sad

But I've never seen a purple egg.

That said Ruth on here has some amazing multicolored eggs.


Thanks Mahonri - I do have some interesting colors.  Here's some that people describe as purple or really pink - plus some gray ones and some olive eggs.  All the birds that laid these have the same two parents - an EE mom and a BCM dad.

I heard that Langshams have brown eggs, with a plum-coloured bloom.

blackdotte - do you find the plum color washes off?

NO MORE BIRDS - sold everything and moved for work.

It is impossible to have 'enough' chickens

Well sorry to tell you they are as rare as hens teeth in Australia, the eggs shown are from the UK.
No I found the plum colour is right through the shell, when broken the inside of the shell is plum.
Most of my Marans have white shells with heavy brown-red pigment, that does wipe off.
