Hello! Does anyone have or know of good breeders that have black-egging (or blue--egging) Cayugas? I love Cayugas and I'm trying to add more egg color to my flock. Most people prefer them, but I'm honestly not the biggest fan of white eggs.

My understanding is all Cayuga lay eggs that are black to start, then they fade to grey the longer they lay. My Cayuga aren’t laying yet.
No, only some lay black eggs. The black coloring is a thin, weak coating over the actual shell of the egg and scratches off very easily. Most lay white eggs, but blue-eggers aren't too uncommon in Cayugas.
