Lovely aurprise just now amidst all this horisontal snow and blizzards, my first blue Araucana chicken eggs.
Very hard to photograph - they are a sort of beige blue, and they are larger than I had expected as the chickens are quite small.
I think they look more blue in the photo below which is of our complete colour range of eggs!!
From the left - small bantam egg, two Araucana eggs, two dark brown Marans Froment (wheaten) eggs, they started laying at the end of the summer.
the Araucana eggs are such different shapes that I thought the ducks had nipped upstairs to lay an egg, but the breed of duck I have Khaki Campbells apparently lay white eggs, so the variation is in the Araucana.
Short posting I am afraid as we have to drive down the mountain to collect one of our cats from the Vet, more about Billy later.
