Mint Chocolate Chick Project
One of the fun parts of raising chickens is being able to come up with fun crosses. The most famous cross being the Olive Egger, that focuses on egg color. This project is all about feather color then egg color. Our Mint Chocolate Chicks got their name as a play on words, for looking like mint chocolate chip ice cream. The white mint flavored ice cream with chocolate bits. As adults the hens will be all white with dark spots and speckling, they will also have the possibility of laying mint green or a brown egg. The photos below show how some of the color patterns could look.
