Adding layers that yield colored eggs can add a touch of enchantment to the egg collection and attract shoppers to your market stall. Some chickens lay gorgeous blue, green, and olive eggs, but you won’t find brilliant red or purple eggs at the grocery store anytime soon. Contrary to what might be expected, these colors are all the result of heredity and not dietary consumption, so go on and be amazed at these 12 chicken breeds and their beautiful colored eggs.
