I bought 4 new chicks just over 3 weeks ago, one of which is a Green Queen. It seems like Meyer came up with the name. I'd love to see before and after pictures of yours if you have one and a picture of their eggs if they are laying.

My daughter calls ours a penguin because she has a layer of white feathers underneath .

They just look like easter eggers, since that's what they are.:]
Don't let them ride on your head or shoulders, it's cute now but it's not when they're full grown and insist on it.

Got my Green Queen from Meyer in April. She is gorgeous and talks a lot! Can’t tell if she’s mixed with a light Brahma or Favorelle but she’s highest on the pecking order so I’m thinking Brahma mix.


And she lays BROWN eggs. I was so disappointed but we love her. (She’s the white one obviously...beard, muffs, and feathered feet.)

Wow, looks very different from mine! Yours definitely look like it's part light brahma. Mine is all black with one layer of white feathers at the very ends of her wings, and still has white fluff on her belly. Only 4 weeks old now. I'm going to be pretty disappointed if she plays brown eggs, I already have a bunch of Brown layers.

I have one Meyer Hatchery green queen. We call her Goth-Chicken. She is... Spirited, I guess. I would be more inclined to call her standoffish, and on worse days, hateful.

Still cute, though. Pics go from most recent to oldest.

Ooooh this looks more like mine! How old is yours? Does yours have feathered legs like mine? Mine is decently friendly and let's us hold and pet her so far. Mine is 4 weeks old.

Nope, naked legs. Also doesn't have the usual EE fluffy cheeks/beard, or if she does, it's much less obvious.

Edit: she's about 7ish weeks old. Hatch day on or around 11/2/20.

I really hope she chills out as she gets older.
