McMurray Hatchery Whiting True Green

The Whiting True Greens are excellent green egg layers. This relatively new breed is popular as hens lay consistent large, green eggs, have an astounding feed-to-egg conversion, are not likely to set, and free range well. 

Mature birds range from reddish to chesnut in color, have a single comb, yellow legs, and are on the light side — averaging around 4-7 pounds. Day-old baby chicks display a variety of colors from golden to chestnut to a darker reddish brown.

The Whiting True Greens were developed by Dr. Tom Whiting, a poultry geneticist specializing in developing feathers for the fly-fishing industry.
