    Hi all!,
    I'm New to raisng chickens (although we had them on our farm when I was a child.) I have three now grown laying hens; 1 barred rock and two americannas. They are not show quality. I also am raising 9 SLW and 4 GLW. Lastly I have a pair of blue morans, that I hope to raise chicks from. The cockeral has lines on his feathers but the hen does not. I also have one sold to me as a "Super egg layer" but I think its a cockeral Lol. I will post pics soon and see if someone can identify the breeding. Thanks for reading!
