On December 4, farmers in Mengzhuang Village, Qugou Town, Xiangshan District picked up green-shell eggs in the henhouse.
Earlier this year, villagers in Mengzhuang Village transferred land to carry out five black chicken farming. Five black chickens are characterized by five blacks and one green, with black hairs, skins, meat, bones, internal organs, and green eggshells. At present, there are more than 800 hens and five black chickens in the breeding base, which can produce 500-600 green shell eggs per day, and the retail price of a single egg is more than two yuan. Green shell eggs are in short supply in the market because of low cholesterol and high trace elements such as zinc and calcium.
