    If you're looking for unique chickens that lay beautiful eggs, you've come to the right place!

    I will be taking better photos of my eggs this weekend - but here are photos showing the different shades coming from my chickens.

    This year, I have 2 breeding pens set up. The first is my Olive and Chocolate Egger pen, and the second is my EE pen. Descriptions can be found below...

    ----------------------------------------------------------------​

    Pen 1 – Olive and Chocolate Eggers (F1, F2, and F3)
    The rooster in this pen is a very nice Black Copper Marans. He hatched from a very dark brown egg. Hens include F1 and F2 Olive Eggers, Easter Eggers, and Marans.

    There are three F2 Olive Eggers – they are all blue, without beards. They are all split for lavender, and two of the three are frizzles. There is a Blue Wheaten Frizzled EE and a couple of non-SOP Marans (who lay very nice eggs). When ordering from this pen, you will receive dark brown, olive, and green/blue eggs.

    Chicks that hatch from this pen will be primarily blue and black copper, and about half of the chicks that hatch from blue or green eggs will be frizzled.

    Chicks hatched from this pen will lay either dark brown or olive eggs.

    These eggs are $55/doz, shipped, and I do send plenty of extras.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    Pen 2 – Frizzled EE

    There are 2 roosters in this pen; both are frizzed. One is a Cochin/EE mix,, and is blue (single) barred. The other is a blue-based EE.

    Hens in this pen are all smooth; they are mostly EE’s in a variety of colors.
    There is one Lavender EE hen who lays green eggs.
    There is also a very nice Welsummer pullet, and a Marans pullet, - any dark brown eggs from this pen will produce Olive Eggers.
    I also have two Naked Neck hens. The first lays a minty green egg. The second is her daughter, by my BCM rooster. She lays a nice olive green egg.
    Finally, I have one hen who is a Cochin/Marans mix. She lays a large, medium-brown egg. She is big and quite fluffy. About 2/3 of her chicks will lay green eggs, and 1/3 will lay brown eggs.

    Chicks in this pen could hatch in a variety of colors; blue, black, and splash, along with wheaten and duckwing. About half of the chicks in this pen will be barred, and about 50% of the chicks hatched from this pen will be frizzled. A naked neck or two is possible from this pen. If you'd prefer not to have their eggs, I can leave them out.

    Eggs from this pen are $45/doz shipped.​

    ----------------------------------------------------------------​

    Shipping & Handling

    Eggs will be collected several times daily, and kept at about 50-55 degrees until they are sent. They will be shipped once I have enough eggs to send. Eggs will be no older than 3 days old. Eggs will be clean but unwashed. Each egg will be individually bubble wrapped and very well padded. These eggs have great fertility but I am not responsible for rough handling or delays by the USPS. Buying shipped eggs is a risk, and I cannot guarantee hatch rates. By making a purchase, acknowledges the risk involved in shipping hatching eggs and will not hold the seller liable for postal delays, egg infertility and/or poor hatch rates.

    Just posting to mark my spot so I don't forget. I got eggs from you last year and really enjoyed the mix! I sold most of them, but kept a frizzled duckwing rooster for a breeder this year, and a solid blue frizzle hen who lays blue/green eggs. I don't have my incubator up and running yet, but I'll be checking back with you on availability in probably a month or so.

    When you ship do you ship from both pens or can we request from one pen or the other?

    I have them listed separately, but I am happy to do a mixed order from both pens for $50/doz shipped.

    Yes, I plan to offer them throughout the year, as long as the girls keep laying well!
