We've raised this breed a couple of times because the colored eggs are a lot of fun and sell well. The only hen of these that we have right now doesn't lay blue or green eggs though, just cream colored. Despite this she is a great layer with an egg almost everyday in season. She and our ameraucana rooster are lovely birds and we love to have them in our flock!
