    Good luck with the little guys, that's going to be a very colorful flock and egg basket.

    That's going to be a beautiful assortment. Definitely trade the RIR for the cream leg bar. That's my new must have next year. And you get a blue egg layer.

    Exactly ! The RIR seems like such a consummate definitive brown egg layer, BUT, that Cream Legbar has just captured my interest - glad to hear from you i'm not the only one ;) Where are you looking to get yours from ?

    I have my order planned out on MPC- I just have to hit submit! But I'm giving it one more day to think about if I REALLY want to raise baby chicks. I mean, of course I do, but it can't hurt to think one more night.
    I'm getting-
    3 White Leghorns
    4 Easter Eggers
    2 Silver Laced Wyandottes
    2 Buff Orphintons
    2 Red Stars
    and
    2 White Silkies! (I have one lonely white silkie in my yard now that needs a family)
    I wanted a colorful egg basket and a colorful backyard!
    Yay for baby chicks!!!
