Giving credit where credit is due, a man has developed a color chart for the blue egg gene. His name is F. Decmar. Here is a link to the egg color chart:Which breed of chicken lays the bluest of the blue eggs? I have Ameracuanas but am looking for a more distinctive blue.
Hi Nancy,Hi Chitkat, very helpful chart... Do you know why the chart says on it that "the colors are not accurate, for information only?"
Thanks again. Nancy
So right...and I love EEs a lot. I think that sometimes they will slip through the cracks because they aren't an official breed per se. So if someone asks a breed then the others are referenced, and the others would 'breed true'. With an EE it is like a box of chocolates -- you never know what you will get.EEs (Easter Egger- Similar to Ameraucana and Araucana but has the Blue, Yellow, Pink, and Green egg gene. EEs are not purebred, therefore, they are not showable.) lay different colored eggs also.
