    Is there any one in Central Virginia that sells Bieles? Or am I stuck with mail order?

    By standard I guess I really meant common. RIR, Leghorn, BR etc. I was mainly curious about the quantity comparison. Thanks

    I didn't find mine to eat tons more than my other breeds. I do free range they are pretty good at free ranging. Mine just started laying for a month maybe. I getting 4 to 6 eggs per hen a week. Some of my eggs are jumbo I showed it to a friend they thought its a triple yoker. It's the on in the pic from last week. Has anyone had a double yoker I want to hatch it but don't want to if it a double yoker. Pam

    I rotate my different breeds half a day for each breed. So this way no mixed breeds. And both are getting sun, exercise, bugs, etc. Pam
