The Cinnamon Queen is one of two modern day production brown egg laying strains from hybrid breeding. They produce fast body development, fast egg production and rich brown egg shell color. These strains will start to lay eggs at a younger age than most standard heritage breeds and produce big large/extra large brown eggs. They are also color sexable as chicks for the first generation which are the chicks you will receive. Cockerel chicks are white and the pullet chicks are more brownish red in color. Leg color is mostly yellow but a few may have some greenish color. Feathering color varies with brownish feathers and white feathers on the adult hens. Feathering color varies from totally white to white with light to dark red feathers in shoulder feathers in the adult rooster. Chicks from the second generation will not be color sexable and will come in multiple colors. The parent stock is made from a Rhode Island Red male and the Rhode Island White female.
What I have heard and read on the Cinnamon Queen (CQ) is that they are in the 320+ class of layer. I think that the Hy-line is the only breed that will out produce the CQ. I do not think that they have a short life span, just a shortened production period, because of the high production rate. I have four from last year. I am not sure that they are even producing, as I have not noticed the tell-tail signs of coming of age. They are all interesting birds and somewhat flighty. I got mine, as I am into the small farm egg production. Plus, silly as it may sound after my trips to Iraq, they are my service animals. Yeah, I still harvest them, but there are days I need something bigger than me to get out of bed for. And 80-ish dead cluckers in my pen is enough reason to move and feed them.
I have a "production" coop with 16 Hy-Line Browns, and 5 Cinnamon Queens. I too got them for egg production, as I enjoy giving eggs away at work. They are among my favorite chickens, they are friendly and run up to me when I go out to their coop. I am glad I have them and will get more. Oh, and they produce like crazy!
Uhhh i (think) have a Cinnamon Rooster. and he is HUGE compared to everyone else. (brown leghorns, gold wyndot, (bandamx1?) white silkie mixes with something...) Cinnamon is acctually pretty docile to use.. but i did play with him.. ALLOT.. and her WAS docile to the other roosters untill he figured out he was bigger. aka.. 1 yr later?
