Spring chicks are here

These little dudes were born the 9th of this month. They are Americaunas which is the breed that lays the multi-colored eggs, anywhere from shades of green to pink and everything in between. Figured I would share some pics of the new layers that I am raising. Nothin quite like fresh eggs for breakfast.

I raised Dominicker chickens (Doms) for years, they lay large brown eggs as you know. Man, I miss my chickens. They used to call me Chicken Mike.

Good looking chicks, Matt.

Cute little fuzzy butts! I have Pearl White Leghorns, 28 hens and two roo's. I had to get them because they lay white eggs, my wife won't eat a brown egg. I told her there is no difference in what is inside the shell, but go figure........ LOL

LoL GoFastPadre. I have a wife like that. I want to get a few cows to put in our pasture, but she says no. She couldn't kill them, eat them, or even have their meat in the house. She does, however, LOVE eating meat. She says she would be a vegitarian if the veggies tasted as good as chicken and beef.
