Bountiful Blue Egg Layer

A Super Blue Egg Layer stands in a green grass field.

What do you get when you cross our favorite egg-laying breed with our most vibrant blue egg layers? The Bountiful Blue Egg Layer, of course! Friendly and curious, Super Blues are prolific layers of large, blue-tinted eggs, averaging five to six eggs a week, even during the heat of summer. Typically, Super Blue hens begin laying at 22-24 weeks of age. Bear in mind that they tend to be broody! On average, 15/16 pullets will lay blue eggs when they mature. Because these are first generation crosses (F1), statistically, 1 out of 16 Bountiful Blue eggs will produce a chicken with a single comb (as opposed to the usual pea comb) who 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!
