Have you eaten eggs that did not come from chickens?

Lady Sarah:
When we lived on the lake, ducks laid their eggs next to the back porch where we fed them. Those eggs tasted better than any farm raised duck eggs. The farm raised ones dont seem to taste any different than chicken eggs. The same goes for goose eggs.

Kalandrina:
So if the following is true
Brown eggs are laid by chickens with red ears and red feathers.

The chickens that lay White eggs are laid by chickens with white
ears and white feathers.

What colour are the chickens that lay the blue Araucana eggs ?

"Thanks to Araucana chickens, we can enjoy the blue and green eggs. Today, many chicken breeds and crossbreeds lay a tinted blue or green egg because of Araucana chicken ancestors.

Did you know?

All blue colored eggs can trace their ancestry back to an Araucana ancestor. The Ameraucana chicken also lays blue eggs, but is a direct ancestor of the Araucana chicken.

Araucana chickens are extremely rare in the United States. Most of the Araucana chickens sold in the U.S. are not 100% purebred. That’s because the Araucana breed has a fatal gene that causes a high mortality rate in the chicks. Because of that gene, most Araucana chickens that are sold are not purebred. "
