    I have six hens in the coop at present. 3 are RIR/BO cross and 3 are sexlink (2 black and 1 gold (or red). My roo is a pure welsummer and really beautiful. If you would like a dozen of these mutts let me know and they are yours. All of the hens lay brown eggs every day.

    I just found several Backwoods Home yearly Anthologies. These have a wealth of info on homesteading and making ends meet.

    Have any regular old novels? I like to dull my brain sometimes. [​IMG] I have RIR/EE eggs that are brown as well as cream-colored "EE" eggs...I put that in quotes b/c she's obviously not an EE since she lays cream-colored eggs...but she's very pretty!
