More and more I am convinced that the foods I give my girls affect the color of their egg shells. I have been expiramenting with feeding my girls black berries, and have routinely been collecting eggs with wonderful lavender spots on them. Today, I picked up the most extreme colored egg I have seen to date. I think it may be one of my maran's first eggs...it is smaller than the other eggs I have been collecting. check out that purple color! And yes, the spots really are the color of my nail polish! This is just the latest in the series of lavender spotted eggs I have been getting! They are so neat!
