I just wanted to show you the variety of colors available in chicken eggs. I also have confirmed the Ameraucana identification of our new girls by the green egg!
It is very difficult to photograph the light colored eggs so that it shows, but this gives an idea. At top is a deep brown egg from our red sex-links that just started laying. To the right is a pale green egg from the Ameraucana. At bottom is what is called “tinted” or a very light brown from our White Orpington. At left is a pure white egg typical of a white leghorn.
Green eggs and ham, anyone?
