This variety is a proprietary high production cross of several breed lines, which will yield 280+ predominantly blue and green, colored eggs per year.
Most pullet chicks are brown with dark stripes, but some may also be red with yellow mottling, or even, lighter brown, almost buff, and occasionally, solid yellow. *Chicks which are solid yellow, are feather sexed, while all other color lines can be color sexed.
Most hens will feather out to be a rust or reddish-brown color, with some darker striping, closely resembling their Cream Legbar ancestry, but some may also be cream-colored. Thanks to the Cream Legbar traits, ColorPack hens will develop a top crest and will lay blue, green, brown, and even pink-tinted eggs!
ColorPack cockerel chicks are typically very muted in color, have no barring or mottling, or are just solid yellow, while roosters, may feather out to be multicolored, solid-colored, and even white with some black striping.
The reason that we refer to our breed as the ColorPack, is because this breed will make a perfect addition to your colored egg assortment of layers, truly helping you achieve a “colorpack” carton of eggs.
If you are looking for something different, which will lay at a competitive level, try our ColorPack Layer.
Even though this may sound like an Easter Egger type cross, this bird is not related in any way to the Americana, or Araucana lines.
The ColorPack Layer is color sexable. Available as pullets or cockerels.
