I'm looking for chicken breeds that lay a guaranteed salmon or pink egg, also a regular layer, preferably a bantam.
A friend of mine has a barred rock that lays gorgeous pink eggs, I'd love to have some of those displayed on my counter.

I did some research a few months ago for somebody on the September Hatch-a-long! Thread ( https://www.backyardchickens.com/threads/september-hatch-a-long.1266515/page-60#post-20493541 ) and here is what I found.

Here's a list of chickens that could have tinted eggs. Most are a light pink tint on brown or cream eggs and I think that has something to do with the bloom. Some have some kind of connection to Araucanas and Ameraucanas. All listed chickens have been on at least one website saying they are 'tinted', meaning pink, blue and green. One might even have a purple tint! I have no clue how accurate my Web search have been, so some of this could be completely false, so don't shoot the messenger!

The only way to do this for sure is to purchase a laying hen. A lot of breeds can lay a pinkish brown egg, but there's no way to know the exact shade until they lay.

Or you can purchase several of a couple breeds that are known to have pinkish tinted eggs and hope for the best! :)
