Although we are still waiting on the first egg, the peeps of spring have grown wonderfully into the chicks of summer. The Rhode Island Reds and the New Jersey White Giants…
the Buff Orpingtons, the New Hampshire Reds and the Silver Wyandottes…
and of course, the free fancy… a Cuckoo Maran rooster, who may not contribute to the laying flock, but he sure does fancy up the chicken yard.
Now… if they would only start laying…

I love chooks. I have a soft spot for Rhode Island Reds. They have such a sweet nature. Our Rhodie, Annalisa, comes inside if we forget to shut the door or my girls decide to let her in!! And no, we don't normally let our chooks in the house (just incase anyone was wondering). Jacinta
I am waiting on my new girls to start laying too! It should be soon for both of us I think.xx
My new girls are laying like crazy! Small eggs but a lot of 'em! It's great. Love your rooster, I have a Cuckoo hen and I love her eggs but right now she is broody and been like that for toooo long! I can't get her out of it! 8^)
Our new girls just started laying too. I love our Silver Laced Wyandotte rooster. He is beautiful. We have 10 Americaunas and are getting some pretty blue eggs. Love them in the basket!!

They look beautiful, happy and healthy! The eggs will be adventurous and colored!
