    Welcome! So glad you could join us! [​IMG]

    That is a lovely little flock. Silkies are awesome, and so are Ameraucanas! [​IMG]

    Your hens look a lot like mine. Just thought I'd add, most hens sold as Ameraucanas are actually Easter Eggers, which are lovely and awesome, but not the same thing.


    Here is are Easter Egger (she was sold as an Ameraucana) named Eagle

    Very nice flock. Olivia and Diva should start laying soon, you can put golf balls in the nest boxes to give them the idea.
