I am looking for some eggs to hatch with my daughters. Both will be first time 4-H participants. This will be the second time I have hatched eggs but we currently have no chickens at our house. I am looking for a good show quality breed of chicken. We had EE, Buff orpingtons, and Barred Rocks in the past and were very happy with them. My daughter really wants some frizzle EEs that lay the blue green eggs. Is that possible? and would they be good for 4-h? Does anyone know anyone who sells frizzle EE eggs?
Also I saw a lot of other colors of Orpingtons that looked interesting. Do they lay as well as the Buff? Good for 4H?
Like I said we are new to the 4-H things so I really have no clue. Any help or if anyone knows anyone that is a good source for eggs let me know. It was about 5 years ago that I hatched chicks.
