    I am in Costa Rica. My chickens came from different sources. I guess these represent the breeds that can survive in a tropical rain forest jungle. This is Sophia...She has been laying blue/green eggs every other day for a year now. Unless she is setting. She has raised three sets of eggs:/. Does the rooster influence egg color too?

    The rooster wouldn't influence HER egg color- but it could effect the color of her offspring's eggs. She has to have a bit of Ameracauna or EE in her. If she wasn't a naked neck you'd probably see puffy cheeks.
