    My Araucanas give me blue and green (ish) eggs and my marans give me a very dark reddish brown eggs. The marans don't do well here in the summer, as soon as it starts getting hot they pretty much stop laying.

    And that is my reason for not replacing them ... I think I have one out of four left.

    Hiya if you click on the 'chickens' tab at the top it gives you a list of different chickens and their egg colour. Hope this helps!:)
