A special box arrived in the mail this last week.
It has been much anticipated, but we will have to be patient for a bit longer to really appreciate it’s contents!
I ordered hatching eggs from Chicken Scratch Poultry to put under our rock sitting hen.
I was going to order all Blue Laced Red Wyandotte hatching eggs, but they had a variety that looked interesting. An Olive Egger! It is a cross between a Black Copper Maran and an Ameruacana. The egg color ranges from khaki to olive green to a dark mossy green.
Here are the two varieties, I received 6 of each. All of the eggs are in beautiful condition.
After dark, we went out to give her some ‘real’ eggs. After placing the eggs in the nest, we put her back on them and she snuggled back down. Now we wait 21 days 🙂
