I'm not even sure this is the right place for this question, and I do not want arguement about depth of commitment to a breed standard, but I really do not want to invest in birds, that if I wanted to breed them later that they and their offspring would be a disgrace to the breed either. However, if you wanted a sky blue, large egg, laying hen, in your small flock, that would consistantly produce offspring that would lay a pretty sky blue large egg, what/where would you spend your money on???? And why???? This has become problematic for me because I have read that some pure bred hens do not meet the blue egg requirements of their own breed, laying green eggs instead. I have also read that some EE hens lay absolutely beautiful blue eggs. Also, some pullets with blue egg gene grow up and lay olive green eggs. So, I was wondering, where would you invest your money???? Am I missing something here or does the premises of this question sound about right? Thank you for you time in setting me straight here, I really appreciate it.
