What makes the inside of a Coturnix egg blue? I've cracked one before, and the inside was a bright blue color? I thought it was just that once, but I candeled the eggs last night and a couple more glowed blue?

The main shell color can be anything from white, green, blue or brown. Then the egg goes through the "paint factory" and gets the spots and browning colors.
I have a lot of blue inside shells on my eggs but again I also have white, brown and a couple that I would call green.

EE eggs don't count! Plus the outside looks perfectly normal, it's the inside that's blue... probably means it was a boy
