    Look at their catalog to see what they are offering. If you want to try to hatch the blues speckledhen has true pure blues.

    Mcmurray claim to sell Auraucanas/Ameraucanas(sp) but the truly only sell Easter Eggers which are basically mutts that lay color eggs. Usually their eggs are green not blue and they have no colors to choose from.

    What did they lay then? Were they from hatchery stock or show stock?
