    You would think that I'd have this down by now.....but I need to know!
    What birds lay green eggs (EE ,Ameraucana)? Which lay blueish eggs? Which lay pinkish eggs? Which lay brown (I know ,there are a lot of those)? which lay chocolate color (is it just Marans)? Which lay speckled (is there speckled)? Anyone??

    brown= too many to list
    chocolate=marans, welsummer, barnevelder(not very dark in US)
    speckled= welsummer and I think there might be others.

    EEs can sometimes lay eggs as blue as ameraucanas, and sometimes ameraucana eggs can be a lil not blue enough and look green.

    Also ees can lay pink and brown eggs as well.
