Well, I just had an abysmal hatch. DH (who likes to pretend he's not into the chicken thing) was talking this morning about the eggs. He actually said, "Maybe we should check with some breeders about getting some eggs. I think we should get some different colors of chickens to have a nicer variety." I was shocked that he suggested it, but I was even more shocked that he said, "we." I tried not to show too much excitement over it so he wouldn't think about it too much and reconsider. BUT OMG!!!!! I've been cruising the internet all day trying to find the perfect Ameraucanas and/or golden cuckoo Marans eggs. Or maybe someone on here has an incredibly beautiful colorful line of birds that lays well. DH has hinted a few times that he likes my lone buff Cochin, but I have heard that they don't lay that well. I got Butterscotch in October, and she hasn't laid one egg, but she is very sweet. I think that she and a blue JG (Little Bigfoot) are his favorites.
