It appears that we have a chicken that lays green eggs. I don’t believe we have any Americana hens, and none of them have the signature grey green legs of one. Whoever she is, she has been laying pretty regularly. I suspect that we somehow got a hen that is an Americana mix. My Barred Rocks we got in the Spring have started laying these past few weeks. They lay brown eggs. We also got Captain Jack and what we thought was a Red Star hen about the same time. So my spidey senses lead me to believe that she is the new layer. None of our older hens have laid that color.
A few weeks ago we bought 10 Red production layer pullets and they are still too young to lay. So, we have had a bit of a mystery here at PHF and one that is a pleasant surprise. We’ll let you know if we figure out who it is. Cheers!
Hahaha…I do not like them, Sam-I-am!
Green for Christmas!
i have had americana hens for years, most lay green eggs, 1 currently lays robin egg blue
i have had dr seuss special breakfast with a west va twist
green eggs and spam for breakfast for deer season breakfast
the cousins are from city in ohio, here to deer hunt
little cautious when saw green shells
not see me put blue food color in eggs to make them green when scrambled
just the thing needed after nite of adult beverages to excess
rules are, if u complain u get to be cook rest of deer season, so they eat
they still try to get even
Ha, Ha! Sounds like one our jokes. Family never know what to expect from us. Have you been lucky enough to get a deer this season?
we got 4 so far
muzzle loader this week
also had them convinced egg color linked to my shirt color
green shirt=green eggs
brown shirt=brown eggs
but if they saw plaid hens would explode
city cousins are fun
Not quite, sorry Jim.
I have Barred Rock/Aracona cross hens that look exactly like Barred Rocks and lay green eggs. I also have a Aracona/Polish cross that lays white eggs. I love my colorful eggs. Never know what we’ll find – blue, green, white brown. Fun!
It’s so cool to see that green egg every day. I’m sure we’ll figure out who it is eventually. Those chickens are definitely entertaining. I can lose track of time just watching them putter around the yard. It’s amazing how the simplest things can make you happy.
We may have the same mix here. Wee still getting one every day or so. Thanks.
