    Ideal just called, they have a hatch date of March 23. I ordered 25 Norwegian Jearhon pullets and 4 cockerels! So excited! I just had to share. Now I have 6 months or so to convince everyone that the white eggs will be just as good as brown ones lol!

    My BF and I decided to put a theme to our farm, so we chose to go with Scandinavian animals. This is the only breed of chickens from the area and I think it will be interesting to try! I love to have the goal of collecting the animals, my DBF is really in for it now! Mwaa Haa Haa! [​IMG] I can see it now, some Blue Swedish ducks, a Norwegian Fjord horse, Danish Jersey, oh yes!

    You'll really enjoy them-beautiful addition to your flock.
    The fun part is, NOONE knows what they are. They'll come to your house and they say, "WHAT are those?".
    Congrats on your new additions!

    [​IMG] [​IMG] Good for YOU I'm getting NJ's just to have the contrast color in my baskets. I'm in love with the looks of the bird and excited about it's demeanor. I just hope , because of it's size, that it doesn't get picked on. If so I'll separate and figure out a solution. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Hi everyone! How is everyone doing with their NJ chicks? Mine are now about 2 and a half months old and we are really enjoying them. They are fun little jaunty birds and I love the long tails. I do kind of miss having a variety of colors but they are pretty running around the yard together. I don't have a camera so I can't post picks but they are neat. I will have to borrow one so you can see. Columbiacritter did you ever get yours?

    Congrats! I was not familiar with the Norwegian Jearhon breed either and had to look it up. Very pretty and great idea on the farm theme. I hear you on the brown vs white situation! I am a brown egg girl all the way. I was brainwashed as a child from the tv commercials that sung, "brown eggs are local eggs, and local eggs are fresh!" Just kidding... But I must say, I have two Leghorns that consistantly give me nice white eggs everyday so I love them for that! And the white eggs taste just as good. [​IMG] Congrats again!
