In the Brooder
- Dec 31, 2013
Hello! I have my first ever little flock of 6 chickens. I got them in early summer and they just started laying a couple of weeks ago. So far, I'm getting about 3 eggs a day, colors being either very dark brown & speckled, a more medium brown, or a lighter 'tan'ish color (the three colors are in the photo below). The chicks were sold to me as 3 barred rock, 1 marans, and 2 welsummer, but I've been doing some research and have since come to the conclusion that I really got 2 welsummer, 3 cuckoo marans and 1 "mutt." (I put some of the girls' photos on here too so you can weigh in on what they are if you'd like.) I was told by someone that the "mutt" is laying all the lighter colored ones... but that would mean she is WAY out laying the others. Thoughts?
