Happy Mother's Day!

My chickies arrived! What beautiful colors.

A Welsummer's backside.

Jake the Jealous Dog. Very, Very Jealous.

A White Leghorn. We've never had homegrown white eggs before.

So, all in all, there are 5 Barred Rocks, 3 Welsummers, 2 White Leghorns, 6 Rhode Island Reds and 15 Golden Comets. I am still looking for a couple of Americaunas (Easter Eggers.)
I chose these breeds for their variety in egg colors and for the excellent egg laying track records (possibly 5 eggs a week per chicken!) I guess I better start asking the neighbors for egg cartons!
