Easter Eggers are fun crosses of our purebreds paired with first generation crosses. We are now offering a pale pink hue egg for the first time. Each egg you receive has the potential to hatch a pullet that will in turn lay an egg of different color.
Our Olive Eggers are a mix of several breeds for a wide variety of plumage colors, patterns and egg shades curated for the backyard hobbyist flock.
Autosexing Olive Eggers: Golden Bielefelder x Cream Crested Legbar Olive Egger
Many offspring produced from Cream Crested Legbar imported to the US in 2010 developed warm tones in their feathering setting them apart from the imported pastel and gray toned Cream birds. These Legbar were established as a US variety, Golden Crele Legbar. They are currently housed with the Cream, offering a 50/50 chance of variety color. They retain their autosexing and colorful eggs, just look different than their Cream cousins.
55 Flowery Hen
The gorgeous 55 Flowery Hen have marking similar to Speckled Sussex, boast jumbo pure white eggs, excellent feed conversion, a calm personality, and are more friendly than the Legbar.
Black Copper Marans
Black Copper Marans chickens are known for laying lavishly dark eggs. Our flock of Marans originates from six separate lines and breedings are selected for dark egg color and overall health, not SOP. Colors range from deep reddish-copper, crackled-copper with dark brown flecks, to a decadent dark chocolate tone.
Lavender Ameraucana chickens lay lovely true blue eggs, have thick fluffy beards under their beaks, and muffs adorning their cheeks. A young visitor asked me once if they were part owl. We are currently keeping only pullets for OE/EE crosses due to an aggravating picking issue.
This dual purpose autosexing breed is an excellent choice for a homestead. They are curious and gentle, making them a good choice for farms with small children. By only five months of age, the roosters were by far the largest we have ever raised here on the mountain, and have never had an argument.
Cream Crested Legbar
Cream Crested Legbar is a beautiful autosexing breed offering a consistent supply of large, light blue to green tinted eggs and lay earlier than many breeds.
