    I got a purple egg from one of my chickens yesterday . I free range them and they eat just about anything that moves. Any ideas why. Don’t want to get poisoned 😂

    The purple tint can likely be washed off.

    any chicken with a genetic disposition for protoporphyrin IX can lay a purple egg. The shade of purple will depend on how thick the bloom is. The thicker the bloom, the darker the purple, it occurs in chickens that lay brown eggs. Hope this helps. It is safe ❤️🌿

      Thank you so much. It does lay brown eggs. I feel so much better. Can’t wait to show the grandkids!
