    Hi chicken keepers,
    I would really like to know for sure if Blue Leghorns can lay blue/green eggs.

    Thanks-

    True blue leghorns should produce white eggs.

    No, Blue Leghorns should not lay blue or green eggs. Leghorns should lay white eggs.

    Leghorns of all varieties lay white eggs. A bird that lays blue/green eggs is not a Leghorn.
