Whiting True Blue

Dr. Tom Whiting, a poultry geneticist specializing in developing feathers for the fly-fishing industry, developed the Whiting True Blue.  With his broad background in poultry genetics, he developed this breed to lay a consistent blue egg as you can see in the photo. These are not Araucanas, Ameraucanas, or 'Easter Eggers', they are their own breed.  The birds will have varying feather patterns and coloration, which will add color and beauty to your flock.

They will breed true for egg color, but will segregate into a myriad of plumage colors. Leg color will vary with plumage color.

Egg size will start out with medium size eggs and progress to large eggs given adequate nutrition.

When shipped, these chicks will be between 28 and 63 days old. At 28 days old, most chicks do not require supplemental heat, and so can be started out in your coop. They are vaccinated for Mareks and Coccidiosis.  They are raised on an all natural GMO-free feed. Because they do not require supplemental heat, we are able to ship as few as 1 of these 4-9 week old chicks. You can mix and match any type of 4 week old chicks in your order.

There will be limited numbers available, so order early if you would like to receive these unusual birds in your flock.
