    Which Ameraucana do you think lays the bluest egg? I was wanting to see if there is a certain color, variety that lays dark blue than other Ameraucana's. I am talking about TRUE Ameraucana NOT EE.

    I think it depends more in the individual strain and breeder than a color. Each breeder needs to cull for egg color along with type, etc. Some are better at it than others. You'd have to simply ask the breeder what egg color they're getting. Just cause they're more common colors, your best bets are probably going to be black or wheaton, simply cause there seem to be more of them than the other colors.
