If you are looking for some good, reliable, egg layers/meat chickens that are both cold and hot tolerable, I would suggest Black Australorps, maby crossed with Black Jersey Giants. I have not tried them yet, but I have done quite a bit of research on both and intend to try them ( just got some chicks of both last week). If you want green eggs, crossing them with Ameraucanas should do it.
I just ordered six GEM, Green Egg Machine, chicks from OkieCritters due to hatch in mid May. She crosses her Ameraucauna roo with RIW hens and gets prolific layers of big green eggs that are a brighter shade than you get from OEs. Some are lime green. I'm super excited! She's taking orders now so Google her website and call her if you're shopping for green egg layers. I will see how these green eggs compare to my EEs green eggs. It's nice to have many shades of color!
Hey anyone know, if I breed a blue egg EE cock to a bielefelder hen and they are both auto-sexing will I get mint green egg laying pullets with auto-sexing chicks in both the first and there after generations. The green eggs are the color I want to produce using auto-sexers. The hen is a Pappa poultry. The Roo is bred by Jerryse the blue eggs and roo pic are courtesy of him these are not my pic or birds just wanted to make the clear. The green eggs are the color I'm hoping to produce by crossing the hen with the roo.
