I am new here but have been an avid BYC reader for a few years. Such a great resource. Thank you everyone at BYC for all your help!! I am crazy about egg colour. I recently acquired 2 young Ameraucana crosses: one with cheek muffs, one without. One of them is - not sure which - is laying beautiful clay-green eggs with WHITE shell inside. (I included other eggs for reference). The pictures below don't do them justice. How is this possible? The green egg as I understand it comes from a blue egg being tinted with brown as it travels down the duct. All of my other EE's who lay greenish eggs, the inside shells are consistently blue. I know they are being tinted because I can scrub the outside green off. So how can a green tint be deposited on a white shell? Thank you .
