Eggs In Basket

Eggs from my hens.

    Chicken eggs come in many colors. The older chickens lay the large eggs, and the young hens lay the smaller eggs. My oldest chickens are almost 4 years, but they can live as much as 25 years.

    How did I end up with so many chickens?!

    You have aracauna's or easter egg chickens?
  • Cheryl 10y

    I had an Americauna rooster, who sadly passed away, and two Americauna hens. They had offspring with other breeds, so those were Easter Eggers! Apparently the blue egg gene is dominant.

    I have an lavender Aracauna rooster and a few black Aracauna hens, used to have silkies [loved them] and really want some light sussex now :)

    Everybody always asks about the blue eggs :)
  • Cheryl 10y

    Lavender! Sounds beautiful. I hear that Aracaunas have a hard time producing offspring. I just let mine reproduce however they want and wait to see what I get. :> Whatever I end up with is fine with me, because I love the chickens!

    They are beautiful though I think they look like little pigeons :) The trouble I think people find is that you can't breed crested to crested, you can get some deformities, but honestly I've never had any trouble breeding them though I haven't had any clutches born this year, bloody rooster!

    He needs to get with the program! You're so fortunate to be able to breed them without trouble. I like the way they look, and lavender eggs, well, that sounds stunning.

    That's what I think! He's not that young though, possibly 5-7 years of age, I've got a few hens sitting on clutches but the weather has been so bad that I'm not sure whether anything will come of them ie 38 degrees one day, then thunder and lightening for days on end :(

    Oh, yes! Mine wait until July or so to sit. They are totally uninterested this time of year.
