    Anyone had any experience with the super blue breed of chicken? I just found out about this breed, which supposedly produces large eggs in several shades of blue at the rate of about 5 wk... I've been looking for a blue egg-layer and doing my research for a while, so I was surprised to hear of this breed for the first time tonight when apparently, there have been many sold in the 2015, 2016 & 2017 seasons...

    They sound almost too good to be true, which is why I'm looking for personal accounts from someone not trying to sell me one!

    I've never heard of that strain I wouldn't buy EEs they don't consistently lay blue eggs at all but other than that I have no idea

    I have one EE, my first chicken. So I was happy to have any color she produced and she is sweet to boot. I just got very lucky that she produces baby blue eggs. Of course since my husband found her first egg and told me he got a "mint green" egg, it took me a bit to realize she was laying blue. In fact, it was only when I compared her egg to the light, sage green of my cream legbar that I was sure. Still, I would like to have another hen who lays a deeper blue...

    My EEs lay something like a white egg sprayed with the lightest green

    I had an EE that laid pink eggs. The owner said they pass that on. Fun!
