Day-Old Chicks: Green Queen Easter Egger
Green Queen chicks Green Queen hen
Description:New for 2018 and exclusively ours! This beautiful designer breed is the queen of the coop. Green Queens are super layers of large, green eggs*. This is a multi-generational, multi-breed cross we have been working on for some time to produce a large, easygoing, extremely hardy, prolific egg layer. Most will be bearded; some will even have lightly feathered feet! Its plumage color will vary, frequently blue, black and white, and sometimes even barred.
are loved for their sweet personalities, hardiness in both the heat and
cold, and for their large eggs in all different shades of green and
blue (a small percentage even lay a light pinkish brown color!). This is
why they've topped the best-seller list every single year since we
started selling chicks in 2007.
We love EEs for the backyard flock because they don't tend to be aggressive with one another like some breeds can be (Rhode Island Reds,
we're looking at you!). They're also super friendly, active foragers,
and cold hardy. In their second year and beyond, Easter Eggers are known
to lay extra large
eggs. They rarely can go broody, but are not excessively so. Easter
Eggers are usually
bearded and tend to have slate or willow (blue or green) legs. They are
friendly, and favorites of children, who love their easygoing
personalities and to gather colored eggs.
*Please note that while Easter Eggers chiefly lay blue or green eggs, a
small percentage will lay another egg color, including tinted, brown or
even pinkish. Each hen will give ONE egg color.The egg color will not
change from one egg being laid to another. For example, if your hen
has just laid a green egg, it will lay a green egg its entire life.
