Flashy chickens

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I am looking to add color to my coop, as well as good egg layers in the same chicken. 

 

I love the Blue color and the flashy colors. 

 

Looking for a list of breeds that are colorful, blue or others. 

I know Blue doesn't always breed true, but i think there are some breeds that do breed true to blue color?

 

let me know! 

 

Thanks!

Some VERY colorful, beautiful breeds to add to your flock: Speckled Sussex, Silver Spangled Hamburg, Swedish Flower Hen, Ancona, Exchequer Leghorn, Sicilian Buttercup, Russian Orloff, Mille Fleur d'Uccle, Phoenix, and Easter Egger.

 

I don't know if these breed true, but Olive Eggers are usually blue. :)

I'm getting mostly blue & silver offspring now, with my Serama.

Here are some that I think have a striking appearance:

  • Cream Legbar
  • Blue Isbar- these have been renamed in their country of origin as Silverudd's Blue (although they can be blue-black-splash I think all the plumage types are beautiful - and they lay a lot of green eggs...)
  • Isabel Leghorns
