Technically - yes but as Ara is a recreated breed in Australia it seems that there are still a few surprise genes floating around. I've been lucky to only ever had blue from mine but it only takes an odd 'gene glitch'.
There is a link between the pea comb and blue eggs but it's not absolute.

Hi Sue,

The reason why I ask is that I saw pullets advertised which layed green eggs, and never having owned any myself I thought best to ask, I was always led to believe only blue eggs.
Thanks for confirming that for me.

Ara eggs should be blue I have had both blue and some with a green tinge. I.e. the egg base must be tinted. Only on a white egg shell will you get true blue shells. These frizz eggs were mainly blue and green, with a couple of pink tinted eggs. Can't wait to see what they lay. My bearded silkies lay blue eggs too.

the frizz chicks, gold cuckoo cockerel, lavender cockerel, gold lavender cuckoo cockerel, red cuckoo pullet, black pullet, lavender pullets.
The question is which cockerel is best to keep. Thinking of the golden cuckoo, but the golden lavender cuckoo cockerel is also nice.hmmm. :think:

Looks like I will probably get rid of the cockerals frizz, so if anyone wants one feel free , just want the pullets for layers of coloured eggs. Not pure frizz anyway.

Golden cuckoo May be a pullet yet, not getting any red to comb yet whilst others that I think are cockerals are. They are starting to get the araucana crest now.
