    My incubator is ready and waiting!! I have already 9 eggs that were supposed to be real blue waiting to go in, but would like to find some REAL blue ones. Bantam if possible [​IMG] lol I'm trying to get to the point of having just pure breeds, but it's hard to find any around me. TIA [​IMG]

    I have a Bantam Blue Wheaton Ameraucana Rooster with 1 White Ameraucana hen, 2 Black Ameraucan Hens, and 1 Wheaton Ameraucana Hen...the eggs are a beautiful light blue...I have the Ameraucana egg color chart at home, I can check true colors when I get home...I had six+ yesterday....I usually have B-4 or C-3's....very light and pretty blues....(The parent birds are all ex-show birds, I am not certain what the genetic color combination makes)
    The father is a Bantam Blue Wheaton Ameraucana, here is his pic - I can send pics of the eggs later if I remember - they are very blue, not a hint of green at all.

    Oh, I dont care what/if you pay for the eggs, you can just pay for the shipping and the paypal fee (1.25) - the flat rate box is $10.35....

    Do you want blue eggs or eggs that will produce blue chickens?

    I'm sorry I was not that understandable! LOL I would like BLUE eggs that will produce hens that will lay BLUE eggs and preferably pure breed. But if I could have the best of both worlds that wouldn't be a bad thing either! [​IMG] I know it might be a long shot to get mostly all eggs this color??!!
    Thanks! [​IMG]

    These are some eggs I received this morning, see the one in the far left back corner? That is more of the color I'm looking for.

    Too hard to give stuff away anymore. And the pic may be too small to see the eggs? And I cant get the light to show up ANY blue, which they really are, but I put a white egg in there. Oh well, I quit. They can be chicken food with the Black Copper Marans [​IMG]

    That is what I was looking for to. So far the blue-est eggs I have gotten so far have been from daschund's bantam EE's. They were not a light blue but looked more like the egg you pointed out.

    Hmmm... that blue egg is really nice, and some of the others aren't bad either. I be tempted to just contact the person you got these from, send her the picture with the acceptable eggs circled, and let her know you want more like those.

    I won't be selling mine until later in the year, after a few test hatches. This is my first test hatch in the photo, due Sunday or Monday.

    There are 9 Ameraucana eggs in the picture, but the flash lightened them a bit. Only one is what I'd call unacceptable, too green, but I needed to fill that space in the bator to keep the other eggs from falling over.

    One of my hens lays a pretty sky blue egg, but it's very pale too as you can see. The others lay a blue-green or teal, but most have a nice strong color. Wish I could get that color saturation in the sky blue ones!
