Some breeds of chicken can lay blue eggs - they are the Araucana and Ameraucana. Both lay blue eggs - and purebreds are very rare - especially the Araucana. However, Easte…rEggers (a mutt chicken, with a blue egg-laying ancestor) can lay blue or green eggs, but do not meet the standards for Araucanas or Ameraucanas.
Robins lay blue eggs, Araucana chickens lay blue eggs. Some grouse lay blue eggs as do Ardea Herodias (Great Blue Heron) The California Condor also lays a blue egg.
Blue whales - like all whales - are placental mammals. They givelive birth and don't lay eggs. A whale is a mammal meaning that it gives live birth. there are only several mam…mals on the planet that lay eggs and whales aren't one of them. So no. No, a blue whale can not lay an egg because whales are mammals and they give live birth like all mammals do such as humans.
The Araucana is a certain kind of a chicken, and they lay blue eggs. This happens for no apparent reason. Perhaps it's their diet. The Cream Crest Leg Bow lays a sort of g…reeney-bluey egg, and they taste GOOD !! More answers from DaveScriv: 1) Its genetic, not diet. Details of the mutation not known, but it seems that it can be traced back, before Araucanas got to South America, to Rapa/Easter Island and Pitcairn Island in the Pacific Ocean. Before then? Not known. 2) Spelling error, should be Cream/Crested Legbar. They were created by Michael Pease at the agriculture research department of Cambridge University, 1939 to 1947.

Yes, a very beautiful shade of blue.
Blue jays lay their eggs in nests which are usually in Trees.
Blue eggs may be more camouflaged in green foliage than white eggs. Also, eggshells with blue pigments in them are stronger than white eggshells, so more survive to hatch. Pig…ments may also offer some protection from UV light, which could cause mutations in the developing embryo.
There is a chicken that lays a blue egg. It's an Ancona chicken. (It's listed at wikipedia if your curious.)
Easy, its because the breed of the chicken naturally lays blue eggs its okay go ahead and eat it. Sounds like you have an Araucana or Americana hen. Easter Egger chickens …are cross breeds that can lay a blue egg also.

Yes, usually powder blue. In rare occasions they are white.
No chickens can lay blue eggs, although country chickens can lay brown eggs and others lay white. The comment above is incorrect, chickens can lay blue eggs. Aruacanas, Ame…raucanas and Legbars are all breeds of chickens that lay blue eggs. Depending on the breed, chickens can lay eggs that range from white all the way through to a deep chocolate brown in colour. The colour of the egg that a chicken lays is not determined by where it lives.
