No, they won't lay colored eggs. You could very well get some downright lovely poop, however!!!!

That sounds like something my DH would tell someone as a joke!

We had a girl ask how we got greenish-blue eggs, and he told her that we gathered the eggs and let them sit outside until they grew mold, then we wiped it off and the residue colored the shell that color.
She said she didn't want any green eggs!!!
