we are in our first year of chicken raising, we have 2 separate flocks, one is all production reds and the other is a mixed bag of different breeds, all brown layers except for one that my husband is reeeeeally crossing his fingers is an ameracauna. the mixed breed flock is about 8 or 9 weeks old. the other day my husband was on the computer with his credit card out so I asked him "whacha buying?" he said that he was re-homing ALL of the mix breed flock and ordering new chickens that lay blue or green eggs. I was upset(I 've bonded with the girls, and so have our kids) but that didn't matter to him, he was being very selfish. he ended up cancelling the order and has gone back to crossing his fingers about our one questionable ameracauna. when I ask him what's the big attraction to green or blue eggs he says "what does it matter?". So I'm wondering, is it really that big a deal? do any of you get those colors? what's the deal about green or blue eggs? thanks!
