Hatching Eggs - White Empordanesa
Our Empordanesa Eggs
Coronation Comb (from the rear)
Want to surprise your chicken keeping friends? Show them your Empordanesa flock, and then show them your eggs. Our white Empordanesas, available to ship within 2-3 weeks, look similar to white Leghorns--even down to the white earlobes--but unlike the Leghorns, Empordanesas lay very dark brown eggs. Colored eggs are always a more brilliant color early every laying season, and slowly
fade as the season progresses. The Emporadanesa is so rare, there are only a few flocks in the entire country. Your friends will do a double take--they will not believe that "Leghorns" can lay such eggs! (And they're right at that!) If your friends are quick-eyed, they will spot the unusual "carnation" comb of your birds and the slate legs that will clue them in if they're fans of rare breeds.
Empordanesas are said to be the name used for white, blonde and red Penedesenca varieties--we have the lovely white, from the Catalan region of Spain. Like Penedesencas, they are good layers of small to medium dark brown eggs, and are active, spritely birds. They do well in heat with their large combs and smaller body size--the white feathers are a help, too--and will not do well in the coldest regions.
Shipping: Eggs are shipped via USPS Priority Mail. No need to
choose a faster shipping method besides 'Ground'. If you'd like eggs
