The popular standard-sized Steele Egger is now available in a bantam-sized bird! The Steele Egger Bantam was designed with the input of Lisa Steele from Fresh Eggs Daily to offer a blue to splash-colored bantam chicken that also lays blue to green eggs. The Steele Egger Bantam may have a crest, beard and/or muff on the head. This one-of-a-kind bantam is exclusive to Meyer Hatchery. Please note there is a small chance of a tan egg.
This breed is a hybrid. Hybrids are created by crossing two different parents and will not breed true. Crosses are generally created for vigor and production qualities, but also for desired traits such as egg color or feather patterns. Meyer Hatchery does not disclose what breeds we use to create our designer breeds as that is considered proprietary knowledge.
