    I got 10 hens today that were displaced because of the flood. There are 3 black minorcas, 3 EE's, 1 brown leghorn and 3 mutts. They are settling in nicely and even laid a few eggs today.

    Quote:The white ones are supposed to be mutts as well as the buff one. I think the buff one is half brahma. She is my favorite.

    That's a pretty awesome-looking rescue flock, Ang! I love a colorful, mixed flock, with some mixed breed birds in there to add their unique looks. I've always been facinated by Minorcas, too.

    You've got some good karma points coming your way for rescuing that flock![​IMG]

    I have been fascinated with Minorcas too for quite a while, I would like to get some if I lived out farther.
