    Do white crested polish chickens ever lay green eggs? I have 2 golden sex links, 3 aruacanas (?), And one white crested polish. Today we got 6 eggs for the first time! I find it hard to believe that tiny little green egg didn't come from my little bantam hen. Opinions?[​IMG]

    Welcome to BYC!

    Polish will not lay green - that white egg to the top is a Polish egg.

    The green is likely just a fairy egg from one of your supposed "Araucanas." Since they are producing green eggs, however, they are certainly not Araucanas (besides the fact that Araucanas are extremely rare and generally priced in the range of hundreds of dollars). Your green layers are in fact Easter Eggers.

    Thank you. From all I've read, I thought the white one was from the polish. What exactly is a fairy egg?

    Make it 3 for 3. It had to be the Polish. Oh, and :welcome. Great to have you aboard!
