These have much less of that purple, but here's the shells from some of her eggs next to a Dixie Rainbow eggshell:
So were these eggs washed?

I had some lt brahma that had a purplish speckled bloom, the intensity of the purple varied from day to day...just as other tinted blooms I see.
Pigment in coating can vary also.

I think they were, but not 100% sure. Her blooms definitely vary from day to day. Sometimes her eggs are almost purplish with a slight green undertone, sometimes they're olive green with purple speckles, and sometimes they're olive green with a slight purple hue.
