17 Rainbow Egg Layers
Elk Valley Farm
10 day-old-chicks (any extras will be added)
This lucky winner will receive chocolate, blue and green egg layers.
Cream Crested Legbars
The Cream Legbar is well known for its beautiful blue to bluish green colored eggs as well as their autosexing ability. The breed was created by crossing Leghorns, Barred Plymouth Rock, Cambars and the Araucana.
Unlike many of the production breeds, the Cream Legbar lives a much longer and productive life. Not only are these birds cold tolerant and have the ability to lay throughout the winter but they are also very friendly. However, due to the size of their combs, they can be susceptible to frostbite. Extra measures should be taken to keep them dry and free from a damp environment if the weather gets too extreme.
Black Copper Marans
We are not just another Greenfire Farms reseller! Our Black Copper Marans roosters are straight from Greenfire Farms newly imported stock, while our hens are from Bev Davis, Wade Jeane and Greenfire Farm (A line) lines for diversity. After working with this breed for several years, they are now known as the Elk Valley Farm line! We sought out to find a line that would reliably produce dark-colored eggs as well as follow the breed standard. We only hatch eggs that are either a 7,8 or 9 on the 2018 Marans color chart.
Black Copper Marans (ALWAYS spelled ‘Marans’) have a rustic and traditional appearance. They stand confident and dignified! The hens are plump and the roosters with-hold a powerful pose. They stand with a perfect V-shaped triangular form. With their proud stance, feathered legs, and copper shine you can’t help but realize Marans are the ideal heritage breed to complete any homestead.
Marans are an excellent dual purpose breed but their unique attribute is the shell color of dark chocolate. It’s this extra deep brown egg that draws many French chefs to only cook with Copper Marans eggs. When cracked open, the yolk is bright orange and sits perfectly centered within the white and holds an ideal dome shape. Black Copper Marans eggs are reason enough to choose this breed as your go-to layer.
Blue Birchen Marans
This French line of Blue Birchen Marans is known to produce some of the darkest chocolate-colored eggs of any Marans variety. We only hatch eggs that are either a 7,8 or 9 on the 2018 Marans color chart.
They have gentle personalities and are simply one of the most stunning color variety! The winner of this auction will receive a mix of blue, black and splash.
Olive Egger is an excellent choice. Many shades of olive and green can be expected from these birds. Army and sage green, along with speckled green eggs can be seen. We create our Olive Eggers with Black Copper Marans/ Blue Birchen Marans and Ameraucanas/Cream Crested Legbars. They are known for being undoubtedly friendly and outgoing.
We guarantee live delivery and the health of the chicks if delivered within the USPS guaranteed time and picked up from the post office within three hours of their arrival. Chicks will only ship USPS Express which is the fastest option possible.
