one blue egg

We used to think all blue and green eggs came from Araucana or Americana chickens, but now researchers say they can be laid by any hen , usually a "barnyard mongrel" that carries the blue egg gene. When I had a large flock of Bantams, I'd often get 30% colored eggs every day. Seeing this beauty in my carton of eggs from the Egg Lady in town was a happy surprise!
