Hey all, looking to start chickens. I'm wanting an all black chicken flock, but with a variety of egg color. I'm have black astrolops and black sexlinks recommended to me for brown eggs. What do you recommend for a black chicken that lays white eggs, blue eggs, and green eggs (or any onther color I'm not aware of!). I would prefer if they were good egg layers, but I can sacrifice a little for color. Thanks everyone!

Black Mincora lay white eggs.
black Ameraucana lay blue eggs.
I'm not aware of a black pure bred that lays green eggs, but it's easy enough to get a black EE that lays green eggs, if you're breeding from a black Ameraucana.

Jersey Giants lay light brown/cream eggs. Langshans have feathered legs and lay darker brown than sexlinks and Australorps; some even look purple.
Some all black white egg layers are Minorcas, La Fleche, and White Faced Black Spanish. For a bit of visual interest, Anconas are black with white 'speckling'.
