Classes for eggs

At the last National Championship Show there were 100 classes for eggs. These range from single eggs of one colour to magnificent plates of six eggs of one colour – a very difficult achievement.

Various breed clubs have their own eggs classes such as Araucana (blue eggs), Marans (brown eggs), Welsummer (red-brown eggs), Minorca (white eggs) and then there are classes for three different coloured eggs – usually brown, white and blue.
