What does it mean? Does the egg color tell you if they are pure breeds? even in black/blue Cayugas?
It doesn't mean anything, except that the first few eggs of the season are usually (but not always) darker than subsequent eggs. I have two blues in my flock. One lays a white egg, and the other lays a blue one that is identical to the ones laid by the two black ducks in the same pen. Here is a sample of eggs laid in one day by my Cayuga flock:
I don't have any mixed cayugas yet (well, none laying, I just hatched my first batch, they're adorable!). My pure female (the only Cayuga I have, so all the babies are mutts) lays the grey/green eggs only. I'm curious to see what color the babies will lay, especially if I end up with two from different dads.
WOW! I have some Teenage Cayuga's and i hope their eggs look like those.
(My Favorite color is Green)

Does it matter what time of year it is? Will the color of the eggs for a paticular cayuga change? I thought I had read this somewhere.
