Colored Ameraucana eggs...

  1. what does this mean? What colors? My first two pullets became hens today by laying "brown" eggs and I think another will lay soon as her comb is full and red but the fourth pullet still has a pale and thin comb.

    Will those two stay brown egg layers? Will there be different colors every time they lay? What does it mean?[​IMG]

    "Americaunas" are lesa likely to lay grey-blue-green eggs than Aracaunas... but I was also told their diet has a lot to do with it too....
    a wider variety in diet is supposed to help with the colors....

    Maybe to get the blue use blueberries, grapes and eggplants?? (LOL) [​IMG]

    No- but really-- add some fruits and veggie scraps to their diet-- it may help!
