    I have been having chicken dreams for a couple years now, but have always lived in areas that prohibited chicken keeping. Me and my husband recently moved into a country house and have finally been able to pick up our first flock of fuzzy butts! Any advice from northern IN residents would be greatly appreciated!

    I have ameruacanas (supposedly, we'll see once they feather out), RIRs, and a BR. Debating if I want to pick up a couple that will lay white eggs or not to add to the basket color palette. ;)

    Right now I have girls that lay various shades of brown (lost my only EE). White egg layers are on my 'wish list' to add a bit of variety to the egg basket. And check out Olive Eggers, they lay pretty shades of green!
