    My cl eggs will change color ive even noticed it in my show quality ams, they will be blue then some greens then blue again. I dont think it has anything to do with the time of season its just how it goes

    I'm not trying to be argumentative, in fact, I consider myself ignorant in this subject, but one hen laying several colors at different times is not what I have always heard. I'm open to new ideas.

    The eggs can change color due to what they eat. Allot of people also think that eggs start losing their color towards the end of the laying season

    Orange and red foods are said to make the color of the eggs more saturated

    She didn't give a name or link to place. At least not on that page. There are presently 56 more pages after that post.
    I found the information below. I have no idea if it is same place or not. It is in California.

    ChickGenes will soon be offering DNA identification of chickens carrying the blue egg trait.

    Quote:I would cross that pullet back to Wyandotte and produce more Salmon Breast Gold Laced Wyandotte pullets, as you can see the e+/eWh pullets do show their salmon breast, and I have yet to see a Salmon breast Wandotte

    Did any of your birds show sex-linked or auto sexing traits? I am thinking of breeding the same crosses this spring.

    Yes, If you look at the very first posting in this thread, I did a write up on what I believed may have been a transmission of autosexing traits. There are pictures there as well.
