I need help starting a small business of selling cartons of eggs containing all shades possible! I already have chickens and i'm 14 but I think it would be nice to earn some cash for the pocket. I would like to stick with large eggs and good layers. I am a fan of the docile breeds though I do know that the good white layers are far from it.

so...


Brown eggs - Speckled Sussex and Deleware.
Dark Brown - Welsummer (I would take marans but I've heard they do poorly in high temps)
White- Exequer Leghorn and Blue Andalusian
Blue eggs - Ameraucanas (HQ)
Green Eggs - Hatchery quality ee's (sold as ameraucanas, but I already know their secret
)
Tinted eggs - Faverolles


What do you think? Do you have any suggestions as to what breeds and such? Any colors that I'm missing?

My Specked Sussex lay light brown to cream colored eggs, they would be a good breed but I would also suggest something like RIRs and Barred Rocks for normal med brown eggs.
