There are many reasons why we choose to work with the breeds we do here on the farm and one of our favorites is the wide range of egg colors they can produce. We are proud to continue to offer our sage eggers in 2024!
Our sage eggers will produce an egg that is a lighter shade than our olive and moss eggers so you can expand the rainbow in your daily egg collecting basket. Sage eggers are a crossing unique to Alchemist Farm that combines a few different breeds to produce a hen that is the highest production bird we offer. Our 2024 line will be heavier on the speckles then the previous years lines and will lean more green than blue.
Sage eggers will lay 6 – 7 eggs a week during the spring and have our signature sweet personality you have come to expect! Our sage eggers are a medium framed bird that will produce a regular sized egg.
