    Had a quart bag full of blue berries that we picked and forgot about in the freezer from last fall. Gave them to the 6 hens last night and again this morning. Now they are all pooping bright purple poo!! Was going to post a pick but figured no one wanted to see that. LOL. Wondering if my eggs will have darker shells next couple of days?

    Same thing happened to me once when I ate a quart of wild huckleberries. [​IMG] Ever eat a bunch of beets?

    I doubt that your eggs will have darker shells.
