A lovely surprise, a new egg today laid by Lovey the Lavender Araucana! All 5 chickens now laying : )
Here are today’s eggs……..
Her egg is the one in the middle surrounded by the others, the one that’s the most blue (blue-green).
Hard to get the colour right in the photos. Here are some attempts:
…and here’s the girl herself:
Araucanas come from South America. Their egg shells are blue all the way through, whereas Cream Legbar eggs are white inside with blue just on the outside. I always eat the first two eggs so will soon be able to check that for myself!
