    Try running it under water, does the blueness disappear and leave a normal egg? We had one that did that, and it was laid later than normal for the hen, and as the colour has is the last thing to be added to the egg, I figure it had something to do with her laying late. Maybe she got a bit stressed and held onto it or something, and it ended up with extra bloom? I don't know why, but hey, occasionally you get an odd egg.
