    My sweet dh brought me some local eggs a few days ago. Cracking one open it appeared to be fertile, so I've dusted off the old bator a put a dozen in. It's been 5 years since I've had chickens. We own our home now, but do have an HOA to contend with. I won't be keeping any Roos past 4 months. I'm not sure what breed laid these eggs, but they are large brown eggs. Does anyone know where I can find a list of possible breeds for fun?

  2. hello! [​IMG] from Michigan! check out the breed forum up top, it has 17 pages full of different breeds!. to me, the eggs look like either Rhode island reds, or isa browns? i mean, im no expert but i am sometimes a good guesser lol.

    Welcome to BYC! It's great to have you.

    Eggs could be many things... I'd bet on Black or Red Sex Links.
