    I am looking to add color to my coop, as well as good egg layers in the same chicken.

    I love the Blue color and the flashy colors.

    Looking for a list of breeds that are colorful, blue or others.
    I know Blue doesn't always breed true, but i think there are some breeds that do breed true to blue color?

    let me know!

    Thanks!

    Some VERY colorful, beautiful breeds to add to your flock: Speckled Sussex, Silver Spangled Hamburg, Swedish Flower Hen, Ancona, Exchequer Leghorn, Sicilian Buttercup, Russian Orloff, Mille Fleur d'Uccle, Phoenix, and Easter Egger.

    I don't know if these breed true, but Olive Eggers are usually blue. [​IMG]

    I'm getting mostly blue & silver offspring now, with my Serama.

    Here are some that I think have a striking appearance:
    • Cream Legbar
    • Blue Isbar- these have been renamed in their country of origin as Silverudd's Blue (although they can be blue-black-splash I think all the plumage types are beautiful - and they lay a lot of green eggs...)
    • Isabel Leghorns
