Our first chicks for 2018

On of our hens usual goes broody in Spring, so again, we were happy to let her sit on some eggs. We chose olive green eggs which will hatch into Marsbar chicks, as they are crossed between an Maran and Legbar. The beauty is you can see on day 1 after hatching, if you have boys or girls.

And there was a lucky dip egg included, so a yellow chick as a bonus. Love having different breeds around, they all lay different colour eggs.

At the moment we have white, light brown and light green eggs. If all goes well and the chicks grown into layers, we will also get olive green eggs and light blue coloured eggs.

When the hen goes broody again, I will try some dark brown eggs, would make a fantastic colourful egg box.
