    Hi I'm Kathy and I'm new to chickens. I'm loving every minute of them. I just got my first couple of chickens a couple of weeks ago. But I'm looking to add a couple more chickens to my flock. Either young hens that just started laying or will be laying very soon, or less then a year old. I love the red stars, buff sexlinks, golden sexlinks, buff orpingtons, RIReds, leghorns, any type that are great egg producers of large, exlarge brown eggs, or dark brown eggs. I'm in Maryland near Frederick but willing to travel some. I hope I put this in the right section if not I'm very sorry.
    Thanks so much,
    Kathy

    hi, i'm new here. just joined in to learn more about backyard chicken raising. i have been raising free range layer chickens for two years now and i am enjoying freshly laid eggs daily with darker colored yolks than those bought in grocery stores.

    Hello Kathy! Welcome to BYC from Kentucky! Those are some very nice breeds and cross breeds you mentioned. If you want some very dark chocolate brown eggs you might consider the Marans breed. They are some beautiful chickens too.
