I have a combo flock of 11 hens and 2 roosters. And while I have caught the Cornish Cross rooster sitting on the communal nest and clucking like a hen, I'm pretty darn sure he didn't lay these eggs. There is obviously some confusion as to what breeds I actually have.

My hens:
1 Cornish Cross
1 Welsummer
1 Ancona
2 Lavender Orpingtons
1 Buff Laced Brahma
2 Buff Columbian Brahma (I think)
1 French Black Copper Marans
2 what I thought were Sapphire Gems, but now I wonder.

Everything I've researched would indicate the Sapphire Gems are not Gems at all as everybody else should be laying some shade of brown except for the Ancona.

So to the point, can anyone suggest what breed looks like Sapphire Gems but lays blue eggs? Thanks

Araucana? Is this your breed? If not your sapphires could be Blue Ameraucana or Easter Egger

Oops, sorry...then the one I think is Buff Columbian Brahma and the Sapphire Gems lookalike, though obviously I'm completely wrong 😅

In this light they do look in the realm of more olive than blue (sorry for the dirty muddy eggs. It is very wet muddy right now and they haven't learned quite where to lay yet)
