    These are the first pictures I have taken with the new Black Ameraucana trio integrated into the flock (more like ruling the flock). I also got two more black pullets from the same source and I will be adding a blue and black pullet from Paul Smith.
    Here are my two new pullets

    Newest development is I may be adding a second breed! I probably may be buying some Bantam Blue Salmon/ Salmon Faverolles. So will be offering two breeds because I will be downsizing my olive egger project so I can make room for the faverolles.

    Beautiful, Henry! My poor Gypsy has had a bald head and neck for a couple of months. She quit laying a week ago and now, she is quill-filled. Maybe one day she'll look like my black Ameraucana again, instead of a vulture.
