    "Sapphire Gem should lay brown/creme eggs and "sapphire" lay blue eggs. Sapphire are a CCL Xs leghorn cross.
    There's a couple active sapphire gem threads here.

    Sapphire gems are supposed to be a new blue sex link chicken. Sapphires are called sapphires because they are supposed to lay blue eggs.

    This is my sapphire, I got her from a member here on BYC (as @The Moonshiner said, she's a cross between a cream leg bar and a leghorn), she lays blue eggs. Here she is laying down behind the Welsummer rooster:
