    Yes, that is fine. The pigment of egg shells can vary depending on the breed of chicken, individual bird, and even at different times of year. The bluish pigment is just some extra thick pigment that was layered on during the shell-building process; it may or may not continue to happen.

    My chickens often have varied egg shell colors. My Easter Egger usually lays green eggs, but she occaisionally lays ones with some darker spots or speckles.
