    Sounds like you have a lovely flock! I hope they continue to bring you great joy.

    Thanks my son is so excited you would think he won the lottery. I had never heard of tetra tints until we bought these six gals at tsc but thier eggs are enormous :). We want to name them but they look so much alike we cant tell them apart. The one hen tends to be an escape artists so we call her hendini. Lol
