    Here's a pic showing the purple egg we found this morning. It came from one of my blue copper marans, not only is it weirdly colored but it's even bigger than their already jumbo sized eggs. They usually lay darker brown colored ones like the ones the right, not sure if it's jus because there more of a calcium bloom layer on it or what...but it looks pretty cool. I wish they would always lay purple eggs lol
