    I was talking to someone today who said they use to own exotic chickens that layed greenish bluish eggs. He said the birds were beautifully colored and he thought they were "Iranian...somethings". Ive never heard of them, nor can I find any info on them. But he knows enough about chickens to know it wasnt an Americauna, Aricauna, or Easter Egger. So Im outta got anything? [​IMG]

    I may be wrong on this one but I think the only breeds that lay blue/green/olive eggs are the birds that you mentioned. Never heard of an Iranian breed that is known for it.

    Some supplier is selling Manx Rumpies to Sandhill that lay blue eggs. Unfortunate.
