GREEN EGGS?

Sunday

Linda

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!

Whose laying those green eggs?

    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.
