    No pictures right now, sorry. I got various Mt Healthy chicks for my friend's feed store last spring. Very good and hardy chicks. I managed to keep one RIR pullet for my laying flock. I like her a lot and didn't think I liked RIRs. She is dark red with glossy feathers. I can't pinpoint her egg exactly, but since she started laying, I'm getting a larger than average egg in the mix almost every day. It is a nice tan color.
