    A neighbor of mine says he has an adirondak chicken that lays large brown eggs. Is there such a chicken? These are black with a little brown on them. He likes to confuse me sometimes. Is this one of them? Jean

    i've never heard of it. But it could be a new breed he, or someone close to him developed and is not yet known

    Ask him if you can take a picture of it and post it. I'm sure someone will know what it is.

    Maybe they are black sex-links and that's the name he has given them?

    Hi all,
    I think he just doesn,t know. He told me he had a dominiga roo and it was a ?plymonth rock. I think. It has a large comb.
    I can,t wait till Sat. I am going to a chicken auction in waynesville,NC. They say they are molting now so the price per hen is 8 to 10 dollars apiece. I know that is a good bit but I want some hens sooooooooooooo bad. Jean
