Before You Order
Your order will ship on Monday October 5, 2020 and if you choose local pickup, the local pickup date will also be Monday October 5, 2020.
We cannot reserve chickens, even if the breed that you want is not currently available. If you would like to get 4-5 week old or 6-7 week old chickens from us, then you will need to place an order through our website for one or more of the breeds that we list as being available.
We will send you an email with shipping information when your order ships, but we will not contact you with shipping information prior to that.
If you choose local pickup, we will contact you by email with local pickup instructions.
Regardless of the shipping date, your credit card will be charged when you place your order because we do not have a way to delay payments.
Green egg layers developed by Dr. Tom Whiting.
Several years ago, McMurray Hatchery acquired the “Whiting True Green,” which we raise up to be our green egg layers. This is a line of chickens developed by Dr. Tom Whiting to lay green eggs.
The green egg layers were derived from Red Sex link stock (ISA-Browns). As such, they are good egg layers. The parent stock of our bird’s parents lay over 300 eggs a year.
They can resemble an ISA-Brown, or there is a second, brown plumage pattern. Occasionally there will be some that are a lighter color, but in general they look similar to the birds we have pictured here.
The ones pictured are 14 weeks old. Notice that they already have a well-developed comb.
The eggs are the first eggs from young pullets. I showed them with some white eggs for comparison.
We get day old’s from McMurray and raise them up for sale as started pullets so you can add a green egg to your basket.
