Exclusively ours! This beautiful designer breed
is a super layer of large, light blue eggs. Its plumage is a beautiful barred blue
, rather than the more common barred black plumage, with darker hackle
feathers. On the hen the barring can be more subtle, but on the rooster it's just spectacular.
Cuckoo Bluebars are friendly and smart. They tolerate confinement, but love to forage and love to lay their eggs outdoors. If you have a flock of Cuckoo Bluebars, you'll see that they love to hang out together. The hens mature quickly, so you won't be waiting long for your big blue eggs!
This variety is a custom cross, bred exclusively for My Pet Chicken. On average, 15/16 pullets will lay blue eggs when they mature. Because these are first generation crosses (F1), statistically, 1 out of 16 birds will have a single comb and will not lay blue eggs. Please also keep in mind that your blue eggs may be anywhere from pale blue hued to a more intense, aqua blue. There is no chicken to our knowledge that lays sky-blue eggs!
