Anconas

    Anconas, I love this breed too, they are a little bit flighty, but they compensate with the eggs they lay, very good layers, and they don't eat as much as my Orps hehehe, anyway I started with one Ancona a year later I got a roo, ( Bob ) well I got some eggs from them before my roo was taken from me by a predator, got 3 boys and 3 girls and a little girl(bantam) I don't know how that happened, but I sold her I'll show you a pic of her, here they are enjoy................

    This is Bob
