Most purebred show quality ameraucanas will lay lightly tinted almost white eggs. We ordered Easter Eggers from Cackle hatchery and the chickens layed beautiful dark blue eggs, They also layed light blue and olive eggs. So if you want a variety of egg colors go with Cackle hatchery.

Thank you Mediazeal These eggs are really darker then the picture that I have but I guess all or most pictures are that way. As long as there blue when I look at them I'm OK with it. Thanks for the help Mediazeal.

Hi!  These are some of my Ameraucana eggs from the last few days:
http://i402.photobucket.com/albums/pp102/dipsydoodledoo/ameraucana/32710007.jpg?t=1269805769
2 doz (on right) are from the blue x blue pens and 6 (on left) are from the black x black pen.
I would describe my Ameraucana egg color as 'aqua/teal/blue/green -ish' smile

Those are the Cuckoo green-egger eggs on the top right.
They are what they are.

Having an Icelandic in the coop is like having a 2 year old in the house - they are into everything and don't follow the rules.
