    IMG_20190418_175752.jpg I don't have any of the whole flock, but of different ones. This is Barbara, the favorite of the kids. They're always fighting, wanting a Barbara egg for breakfast.
    This is a picture of an Easter Egger/ White Crested Black Polish cross at three weeks. They're adorable. IMG_20190701_171008.jpg
