Hello chicken keepers!

One of the greatest things about being a chook keeper is raising a flock of chickens that vary in plumage, personality and of course, egg colour! If you want to expand your flock - or start your chicken keeping adventure - you should consider some colourful egg laying hens. You too can spend your weekend collecting a rainbow of cackleberries from your chicken coop nesting boxes

Let’s have a stickybeak at the chook breeds I suggest for bountiful and colourful bum nuts!

chicken breeds that lay coloured eggs

Looking for snow white eggs? Leghorns are champion layers that produce large, pristine alabaster cackleberries. Dreaming of a bounty of blue eggs in your nesting box? Araucanas are the chicken breed of choice. Foraging for a flock of colourful egg layers that will surprise you? Easter Egger chickens can lay blue, green or pink eggs depending on their poultry pedigree. Get to know these breeds and their happily hued eggs a little better. Pop on over to our article here.

Whichever colour their eggs are, one of the biggest benefits of keeping chickens is having a great supply of fresh eggs. Nothing beats having home-laid eggs in the house for delicious meals and baking treats. However, in order to get a frequent, fresh supply of eggs, keepers need to look after the chickens that lay them. There can be multiple issues that are stopping your ladies from laying which is stressful for them and for you!

Don’t worry though – the eggsperts at Chickenpedia have cracked it! They have created the Eggs in Your Basket course to help you, help your ladies lay successfully.
