    I was wondering what breeds I should get to add colorto my collections of eggs? I have mostly brown layers right now with a few creams/pinkish and white. I was wanting to add Ameraucanas and Olive Eggers... I want my collections to be colorful. SSuggestion please. Thanks in advance.

    EEs would easily produce the most rainbow of egg colors due to their mix genetic background, you can get anywhere from white to blue eggs to olive egg colors too. For dark brown Marans (french IMO) are the way to go. For true blue eggs you'll have to you through breeders of Legbars, Americana and their cousin breed Aruacana (I suspect I spelt the last two wrongly)
