I love my chickens, I Iove their eggs...

...but I especially love the blue ones.
They don't taste any different, and all eggs are beautiful, but there's just something about these.




They're laid by my gorgeous Araucanas, and range from pale blue, to an olive green to bright turquoise.

beautiful

  2. I don't know if I could bring myself to crack such lovely eggs. They are beautiful....then again I could just leave them in front of Master M and turn my back. He'd have no problem breaking them all.

  4. Totally beautiful. What a lovely shade of egg. Sometimes things don't have to taste better to BE better, do they? They just magically are.

  6. They are truly gorgeous I will have to get myself a couple of Araucanas I think in the next intake of birds.

    They make for a lovely colour palette all the different shades :-)

    1. You can get black araucanas too - but be warned, they're terribly broody!!

  7. Greetings from Montreal, Canada. Love the colours. It must be great to have REALLY fresh eggs like this. Being in the city I get my eggs from the grocery store...they are fresh, but not as fresh as these. Thank you for sharing.

    How do you clean the eggs? [someone told me not to wash them as it does something to their 'shelf' life and length of time they keep]

    1. Hi Caroline, I dont! These ones are so clean because it's been bone dry all summer so there's no mud around. Sometimes in the winter they do get a wee bit muddy :)
