Welcome Auntie Blue! This is a great place to call home for sure.
I am up north a bit in Loveland.
Congrats on the accidental Iowa Blue! I adore mine. They are a skittish breed but they are super at laying and being mellow about the noise. Mine look like small Black Australorps and lay medium light brown eggs. They are great at finding good things in the yard to eat. (All the bugs we don't want are grand treats to them) They also will strip every red tomato off the plant given half a chance lol.
Here is a pic of Skye as Dawn is busy being broody these days and mostly a grump.
Mine have a bit of feather damage as they are in a pecking order battle in this coop lately. The main hen went broody and that set everyone on edge.
