    Ok folks i have been seeing many of your pics of beautiful egg baskets full of rich dark brown, bright blue, different shades of green and sometimes even pink eggs. Im getting kinda tired of my run of the mill brown eggs. How do i get the flock producing baskets like these?


    What i have: black copper maran roo, rir roo, 4 rir pullets, 5 barred rock pullets, 7 red sexlink hens, 1 black australorp hen, 1 BO x rir cross hen and 20 something chicks from the flock.


    What do need to add to the flock for some of these eggs?

    You'd probably need colourful egg layers like Easter Eggers, Cream Legbars, Ameraucanas, Olive Eggers, Penescendas etc :)
