Those neat blue eggs are from Arucana hens. They also lay other colors, actually quite a rainbow.

When I lived on my dairy farm in Upstate New York, my wife raised chickens for a "hobby."

She purchased some fertile eggs by mailorder and said she was going to incubate them.

I made the mistake of chuckling out loud . . . because she was VERY successful, and had a whole flock of Arucana chickens.

By the way, the Arucana "rooster" is a REAL shi*head, so we ate them as soon as they were big enough.

But, I digress. Raising chickens can be fun, interesting, and educational.

Your beautiful egg photo reminded me of this experience.

You don't seem to understand. This guy "docchuck" is a TROLL and a STALKER. He has been STALKING me for three years, and I have told you that before.

Werent you not listening?

WHY do you let him post on your blog when I have told everyone at SeriousEats (where I am the Senior adviser) what he is doing to me?

I want you to kick him off your blog right now.

The drama of previous posters not withstanding...

The eggs are beautiful. I have a neighbor who brings us fresh eggs pretty regularly. Lots of different colors. Even the shapes vary widely.

The honeycomb looks divine as well.

I found you on TasteSpotting.

Thanks to everyone for commenting! Eating these fresh eggs made me wish I could have chickens but, unfortunately, urban apartment life does not allow it. As soon as I have a backyard, though...

I'm sorry, but my husband is confused.

I did not raise chickens. I raised cats in a commercial kennel.

My husband also posted those comments by "chiffy" and he created that fake blog page for her. You might want to delete that.

Neat eggs though. I recall a rainbow of naturally pastel colored eggs when I was touring England but have not seen them here.

I love to make my own butter, too.
