    My ladies lay beautiful seafoam green eggs. When I take pictures of the eggs, they look bright blue in the picture. Weird but so are the chickens!

    Popular is blue
    Most common is green because it is the easiest to produce
    Followed by brown
    Then white/off white/cream
    And lastly blue

    I have one gal who lays blue. I believe she is 1/2 blue Ameraucana and 1/2 light brown Leghorn.
    My two others lay green. One is 1/2 AM the other is 1/4 Am from physical observation of genetic factors.

    My Easter Egger, Hope, lays kind of in between a sky blue, or mint green...I chose blue for her egg color, though, but am not sure if I should've chosen green or not. Either way, her egg color is gorgeous. :) And I got Hope from my aunt, who in turn got her from a farm store.

    Light green is my most common color. Blue is a close second. I also get a pinkish hued egg, tan eggs and olive colored eggs. No white eggs. I should note that the cream eggs are from the Silkies and other breeds.

    I also forgot to add that my original EEs come from two different ladies who had hatched them.

    My EE came from a free range flock with a white leghorn roo and EE hens. She lays a tan egg with a pink or white bloom.

    My Easter Eggers lay green eggs. They are not olive , all are lighter shades. They are from Ideal Poultry. I bought EEs from them several years ago and all were blue egg layers but one. I was kind of disappointed in getting all green egg layers.
