    Well I guess I'm going to do some reading then. I was just eating the eggs as I did not think they would be anything. Thanks

    I picked a girl with a small comb and excellent layer of large roundish eggs. I was going to pick more but they get angry when separated from the free range flock. This one seems pretty content. She's been in there 2 weeks now so this coming week I'm going to start collecting her eggs to set on the 28th. Im hoping for crests and at least one "ghost barring" I think would be pretty cool.

    I'm finding limited information online but it looks like they lay well and are blue tinted. I can say the leghorn hens are laying well. No surprise there. So if they are blue my customers would be happy. If they are white somehow they aren't real eggs. Like I'd buy some from the store and sell the white ones to them. And if the hens have crest and some color that would be a plus.
