    I was messing around with some editing software and I had this brilliant idea!
    And yes, sometimes I do have a lot of time on my hands. Hope ya'll like it.

    Pretty flock! Your Easter Egger looks tame, good job on the video. [​IMG]

    Though what do you mean by the rest of the flock are all roosters? From what I can tell, they are all hens.

    No I have 25 birds in all, for this I grabbed one of each breed. The 3 roos are EE's but they aren't tame at all. Once I feel like catching them I'll try to record a second video.

    Nice video!

    Just wanted to comment that the first hen is a Production red, also known as a Cherry egger. True RIR's are much, much darker. Also, your Ameraucana is an Easter egger. [​IMG] Just wanted to let you know!

    I like your Jersey Giant! Been wanting a few of those for a while now.

    Oh yeah about the production red. However, what is the difference in the Ameraucana and Easter Egger? Or is there a difference? Either way, she is failing at the blue/green egg laying...her eggs are solid white. ha!

    If she is laying white eggs it means that her parents were probably crossed many times with other breeds, which means that her blue egg gene is very diluted.
