    Skyangel-- sometimes I noticed that fresher eggs (that you hard boil) are harder to peel. Where on the other hand, older eggs are easier to peel.
    A lot of the clear plastic containers are 100% recycled plastic. And are much sturdier than paper cartons, sometimes.
    Thank you!

    I truly enjoyed your photos, beautiful chickens! I want to ask you about the clear egg cartons, and was not able to post a comment on that page, so Im here.
    Actually I had a question,and a comment: Q: Paper, cartons ? They absorb the moisture from eggs, does this play a role in why hard boiled eggs are sometimes difficult to peel? Comment: The clear plastic cartons make for a pleasant presentation for the eggs, I like it.

    Well Jersey Giants have yellow skin- Australorps have pink skin.

    Jersey Giants are not related to Australrops. JG's were made from a combination of Dark Brahma's, Dark Langshans, Java's and some people started to add a strain of Cornish into them too.
    Thank you for asking!

    Such pretty chickens, so why do Jersey Giants have the look so much of Australorps? black feet, black coloring...etc.;....are they related

    Thank you! Silkies would be good therapy chickens because of the fluffy feathers (they aren't "true" feathers, so if they flap... it won't hurt anyone.)
    Good luck with your Silkies! :)
