In the Brooder
- Oct 9, 2014
This is Mary She lays brown eggs (not cream or chocolate brown but they are dark brown). She has a beard and muffs. She is the sweetest hen. Any idea what breed she may be?
I don't mean to sound ignorant, but what exactly is a barnyard mix? I'm new to all of this
A barnyard mix is basically a random mixed breed chicken, such as would come from an unsupervised farm (barnyard) flock. Barnyard mixes can be produced accidentally when no care is taken to breed certain birds together, or on purpose to create a beautiful mixture of breeds. They may look nothing like their parents, or look almost identical. You never know what the offspring of a barnyard mix will look like.I don't mean to sound ignorant, but what exactly is a barnyard mix? I'm new to all of this
