    I would like to know what type or types of chickens lay blue eggs. Because I know that Ameracaunas lay green egss but not blue. Thanks! [​IMG]

    Ameraucanas do lay blue eggs. In fact, a true Ameraucana is only supposed to lay eggs in the blue color family. Mine does.

    Ameraucana, Araucana and Easter Eggers can all lay blue eggs. For Ameraucana and Araucana, the standard calls for only blue eggs, altho some folks are still working on better egg color in their flocks. My Ameraucana only lay blue eggs too, but I only have one color variety of them. My araucana are various shades of blue and some green. EEs can lay any color eggs just because of the genetic mix involved with them.
