    Never ever heard of such. Perhaps it's just a made up name for a hybrid a local is selling?

    tetra means 4 so maybe it lays 4 different colors of eggs (unlikely) or its 4 different colors

    If they were White with black spots on their back then that would be heterozygous Domiant White so maybe they are a cross of Ameraucanas on White Leghorns and which would give white birds with black dots that lay light blue tinted eggs and maybe the Tetra part is maybe from the Neon Tetra fish, they are little mostly bright blue fish and maybe they are associating the neon blue color of these fish with the color of the eggs . ??????????????????????
