    Can an Arucana who has laid blue eggs prior to a 3+ month hiatus, now be laying pale beige eggs with a pinkish tinge? I'm getting some very pale eggs lately but no blue ones. Seems to me, once a blue egg layer always a blue egg layer but, hey, what do I know...I'm new at this!

    Hi from Kentucky! Check out the Breeds thread. They can likely answer your question.

    Hi and :welcome from Ohio. So glad to have you aboard. Sorry I can't help with the egg color. My EE's egg color didn't change, they are still blue. What other chickens do you have? Could it be an egg from someone else? :confused:

    Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan [​IMG]

    Brown and green eggs can become lighter in shade as a chicken lays, but eggs can not change from blue to brown or vice versus.
