These birds are a product of a special breeding project that is now 6 years in the making. The result is a breed that reveals its gender upon hatch so we can guarantee you females.
The genetic makeup of these birds consists of Welsummers, Cream Legbars, and Sage eggers. Every year the line shifts a bit in terms of egg color produced, our 2022 our line has shifted and the hens will be producing more dynamic and unique eggs that can range from blueish to greenish eggs, sometimes with speckling over the top. A small group of these birds will yield a fun and varied daily egg collection. The Azure eggers provide the complimentary lighter blue shade in the egg basket while our Sage eggers bring a lovely green that is a few shades darker with speckles.
Chicks are autosexing and follow the feather patterns of cream legbars as chicks: a white dot on the head means male and an unbroken chipmunk stripe down their back means female. Females can grow up to have little Mohawks or poofs on their heads.
