Want Blue Eggs? Pick These Chicken Breeds!

Step up the unique a notch and go beyond standard brown and white eggs.

Why not step up the unique a notch and go beyond the standard brown and white eggs by adding blue egg layers to your flock? 

Here’s an interesting fact: all eggs start out white because they are formed of calcium carbonate. If you have a blue egg laying chicken, the blue pigment, oocyanin, is added after the white shell is formed and it sinks through the entire shell. Brown eggs get their color from a pigment called protoporphyrin.
