Check it out! Some breeders spend years trying to get that egg color.
Then hen looks like a blue copper marans hen.
marans dont have white ear lobes though
True. Just guessing. I think having a hen laying such a rich colored egg is a treasure for sure.
She was bought for me by my dad as a present, he was told that she was a lavender lace? I researched that and couldn't find anything about it?
When we bought her she had just finished her molt and was not laying, she didn't look in very good condition at all, very pale comb, and her lobes were all white, now they are going red again. She is a very large bird, with a MASSIVE comb.
I feel lucky to be getting these eggs, she is nearly 2 so hopefully we still get a few more from her!
Tempted to ring the place where we got her to see of they got any more, the eggs taste lovely and are Extra large!
I'd definitely call and find out. She is a striking looking hen. She really does have a massive comb doesn't she?
Ah, okay. That makes sense. : )
My guess is some type of Legbar. With the straight comb, white earlobe and green eggs, plus being in England. I know there are other varieties besides the crested cream, just not sure what they are. But everything else fits.
except--I searched and can't find a legbar hen like this. And apparently the other varieties lay white eggs, the crested is the only colored egg layer.
Are you positive she's laying the colored egg? Any chance it could be another hen?
Green eggs? Isn't it a blue egg?
