Although they may look dyed, nature provided the lovely hue of these local eggs, now on display at Ka Lei Marketplace in Kaimuki. Ka Lei Eggs owner Lois Shimabukuro says the eggs were laid by her three black hens, which she raised herself in her own yard. Knowing that her Kaimuki clientele is open to trying new things, she put the eggs out to gauge the response. If customers are interested, Shimabukuro will start bringing in the blue eggs to sell. Nutritionally, there’s no difference between blue and white eggs. At the very least, though, "they’re certainly a conversation piece," Shimabukuro says. Put in your two cents at the store, at 3585 Waialae Ave., through April 30. Hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays and 8 a.m. to noon Saturdays. Call 737-7665.
