We just bought araucana chickens so we have easter eggs all year.

Matcha Powder (some old stuff laying around) didnt work, not shown
Elderberry (dried, crushed, and boiled into an infusion before eggs added) worked slightly well, but not totally great
Tumeric, the yellowy ones
and some old Logwood (Haematoxylum campechianum) dye from 15 years ago found in the garage, that one was a HIT!
we did the plant wrap deco thing. it was fun, a bit of work, but the plants that worked the best for us were dandilion and (wild) strawberry leaves
picture! my two year old will have kinda fun finding them, totally fun peeling them, and will probably throw a toddler fit when we eat them!! happy hunting!
edit: these are made with brown eggs
edit2: we polished with pork lard , REALLY makes them shine!
