    Not just Blue, there's green & pink to
    Or even Mahogany Brown (Maran Chickens)
    Every time I hear the dirty word 'exercise', I wash my mouth out with chocolate.

    Hmm, which grocer, do you remember? I'll be there in December so I'd like to try those out

    When I can't make it to the farmer's market, I often grab the Araucana (blueish) or Maran (beautiful reddish brown) eggs from whole foods - love the look of the blue shells (but I think I like the taste of the Maran eggs better)

    if your yolks or ham are kelly green (like Dr. Seuss' book...), put the food in the trash. do not pass go, do not collect $200. seriously. (unless some smart@$$ dyed them)

    On the other hand, if someone serves you fat guacamole devils - *NOM!* eat those suckers!

    Chicken eggs are so fun...

    You can get a complete rainbow in a flock with a little forethought!

    True Araucanas have the dominant gene for Blue eggs. So lovely.

    Ameraucanas (developed in America from the original Araucana) should be blue, but tend to be green due to mixing and poor selection.

    'Easter Eggers' are most often mixed birds that simply carry the blue egg gene, and generally produce a variety of greenish colors. Though... sometimes not. Sometimes you get cream, or pink instead... a mixed bag.

    By breeding good blues with good browns you can also attain lovely deep olive greens.
    (As shown on the chart, most 'green' eggs indicate that the birds are of mixed heritage Blue x Brown. An easy and inexpensive way to increase the flock back when Aracaunas were fancy import fowl.)

    I think Dr. Seuss was referring to the eggs that are green on the inside. I cracked one open once and it was neon green inside. I definitely did not want to eat that
    many years ago when i was totally poverty stricken, i got some organic free range eggs to make my xmas cake. the 4 or 5th egg that i cracked into the cake, was neon green. the lesson i learnt from that was to always crack the eggs into a cup first lol

    Now I want to raise chickens. It's the only way I'll ever see these things!
