The day old chicks that arrived back in May are almost all grown up now and ready to lay eggs!  This year we got a few varieties that we didn’t have before.  This ‘Mottled Houdan’ is one of them.  The other is ‘Salmon Faverolles’, a French breed with beards, muffs and feathered feet.  We also got some Barnevelders, which lay a nice dark brown egg, Golden Laced Wyandottes, which have beautiful gold and brown feathers, and Ameracaunas, known for laying green eggs!   More photos….
