    Are there any chickens that lay blue/green speckled eggs. (I know there are other birds that do)

    Come to think of it I know there are light brown, dark brown, pinkish, blue, green, and white are there any other colors?

    My EEs throw out a speckled one every once in a while but not all the time.

    One of my green egg layers sometimes lays speckled eggs, the speckles are very subtle though. I would assume it would be possible for a blue egg layer to do so as well.

    I had EE/australorp crosses that frequently painted speckles on their olive green eggs. Not always, though.
