They are beautiful...even Jan. lol I really love the black chickens. The beetle sheen is so pretty. I have been a little afraid of the color though because it gets so hot here. We have months of 100+ in the summer. I have no idea if the heat is harder of black chickens?? But, I would think it would be....something to think about. I had the same problem with the two hens using the same nesting box, they worked it out laying side by side but when Molly had her chicks Sassy finally moved her nest to the top of the nesting boxes....Then Molly started laying there and finally nesting there the next time....She just couldn't stand Sassy having a nest to herself. She's such a bully..lol. Go Jan...lets see those eggs!
