    Glad to be here! Yes the eggs in the picture are our eggs! I love taking pictures of them!

    We have the following breeds:
    2 Ameraucana (feathers, Mixed Brown, Yellow, Tan) Pastel Eggs, blue *baby chicks.
    1 Australorp (feathers, Mostly black all over with shimmering Green & Blue Feathers) Brown Eggs, almost 6 months old pullets.
    3 Bantum (One White, Two Black & Yellow) Small Creme Colored Eggs *baby chicks.
    3 Easter Egger (feathers, Mixed Brown, Yellow, Tan) Olive Green Eggs, pullets, almost 6 months old.
    2 Leghorn ( Feathers, All White) White Eggs, 1 year old hens.
    4 Orpington (feathers, All Yellowish) Brown & some Spotted Brown Eggs, 1 year old hens.
    1 Rhode Island Red (feathers are Red) Slightly Darker Brown Eggs, 1 year old hen.
    3 Rhode Island Red Mix (feathers are a mixture of Reddish Brown & Black) Brown Eggs * 20 weeks old.
    2 Plymouth Rock (feathers,Black & White) Brown Eggs, 1 year old hens.
    2 Swedish Flower (feathers will be Mixture of Colors) Brown Egg, baby chicks.

    Brought home 4 newly hatched chicks again today:
    2 Rhode Island Reds and 2 Delaware Whites

    I'm still wondering about the difference bewteen Amerecaunas, Easter Eggers, Olive Eggers and the Araucana. It seems they either lay green or blue eggs or pastel colored eggs in general. We love all the colors of the eggs that we collect each day.
