    What are likely egg colors for F1 olive egger X blue egg easter egger?

    Question is in title. I have an F1 Olive egger rooster (cream legbar x copper maran). I have several mixed breed Easter eggers who lay light blue-green eggs as well as some brown egg layers. What would likely egg colors be for their offspring?

    Rooster?

    My brother bought this as a chick with 5 golden comets... was told its also a comet, but it doesn't appear to be a male or female comet. Thoughts??

    Question about Blue Copper Marans crosses and sexlinks

    I've heard you can easily sex offspring of marans with white dots...is this true, and would it hold true with crosses? Both my roosters are Blue Copper Marans. Hens are various breeds including: bc marans, easter eggers (yeah, I know that's not a breed), barred rocks, wyandottes, legbar mixes...

    Pretty pullets with little hats and muffs...any breed ideas?

    We got these girls from a local farm, so no idea on breed (mix I'm guessing) or egg color. I don't think they are laying yet but I'm not 100% sure as I don't know what to look for. What do you think? Thank you!!

    4.5 month production red rooster agressive toward daughter and me

    He's fine around my son and husband. I have never acted skittish around him, but he will charge at my 13 year old daughter and me. She is totally scared of him now, and I'm on my guard ready to charge back. Is it worth trying to change him, or give him away as a pet or meal?

    Hen lays a soft egg every day?!

    Thanks, I'll think we'll start with the Caltrate and see if that helps! You're right, the chicken carcass does sound strange...kind of like I wouldn't want to encourage cannibalism...but I'm glad it has helped! I really appreciate all of the responses, and I'll try whatever we can to help our...

    Hen lays a soft egg every day?!

    We sprinkled the oyster feed in the pellets, and also offer it freely in its own container. She has been healthy. The only trauma that I am aware she has had is the end of last summer/early fall we had two hens that picked on her and plucked out about a third of her feathers. We gave those hens...

    Hen lays a soft egg every day?!

    I have a two-year old black Easter egger hen who seems otherwise healthy and lays a soft-shelled egg almost every day. Usually by the time we get to the coop hers is crushed by another hen in the laying box (since they all seem to use a favorite box, which changes daily!). Their layer pellet is...

    Treated with Zimectrin Gold - how long until we can eat eggs?

    Hello. We found live tapeworms in the poop of at least one of our 8 hens. We treated all 8 with Zimectrin Gold (pea-sized), then waited 10 days and treated a second time. It has been two weeks since the second treatment. I am wondering when it is safe to eat the eggs. I am concerned about my...

    Chickens have worms - eggs ok to eat prior to treatment?

    Thank you! Chickens are treated, so I'm throwing those eggs out for the next month. :hit But, I still have a load of eggs from before we knew...hard to throw those out as well (store eggs are just not the same...), but I probably will. I appreciate everyone's replies and suggestions! :)
