Oh shoot! but hey I am sure he is very happy there, I know I would if I was a rooster
Yes they get to live out their lives at the park. I’ve dropped off 6 cockerels in the last 2 years.
They are all 5 hens. The 1 that’s barred and crested with yellow legs is laying a light brown egg. 3 that are solid gray -2 crested- lay green eggs. The one that looks just like Hoover’s sapphire OE pic , gray with black head, slate legs - also lays light brown eggs. Talk about disappointment.
Did any of yours have a light brown spot on them? I just got two a week ago. They are both beautiful blue gray. One has a brown spot on it’s head and the other has a brown spot just past the middle of it’s back.
No they didn’t have any brown, 2 of them and dark heads and three had white and gray. As they grew out they are all hens. Of the 2 with dark heads, one is crested and lays light green. The other is crested and lays a brown egg. Two of the spotted turned out barred, one crested that lays brown, one not crested that lays light green. The last turned out a pretty blueish gray, not created and lay a light green. Hoover’s would say what they crossed but as you can tell they don’t have the genetics map out well. What you get is a guess.
Hoovers also has a breed called a sapphire gem olive egger as well as the sapphire gem. They are in 2 different sections sapphire gem olive egger is listed unfer colored egg layers snd sapphire gems are listed under brown layers.
Mine were listed as Sapphire gem olive egger. I am now able to see that BB, the one with a brown spot on it’s head is a cockerel. His crown is showing now and he has waddles unlike the other who is not showing any changes. She is also a maybe a day or two older.
