You’re welcome. The colorful eggs come from breeding easter eggers with a Turken to get those colors. For instance, a Turken roo over ladies that lay different colors can yield various colors of eggs from the offspring. Mix a Turken roo with a blue egg layer and you might get green or olive or blue eggs from the offspring depending.
Oooo😍 That is exciting! I have only one roo, my NN male. I also have four Easter Egger females! All are 11wks right now. I *think* the girls will be blue layers. It would be so exciting to hatch chicks next year with the possibility of getting green layers!

Oh I would definitely try it! How fun, and it makes for such a pretty egg basket.

My green egg laying Naked Neck's came from crossing them with the Crested Cream Legbar.

I [will tell you when mine start to lay. I think they're supposed to be a tanning brown cause I thought my calico's eggs were naked neck eggs at first when she was laying 2 a dayQUOTE="My2butterflies, post: 23301106, member: 565060"]
I’m curious. For those with Turkens from crackle, do they all lay brown eggs? Or is it possible to get other egg colors from their stock?
My girls are only 11wks so I still have a ways to go before I get eggs from them.
