Currently in Arkansas where we are stationed from Alaska. Alaska is home so by the time we can get back i will have this chicken thing down :) My husband was soo great he built a large coop and was actually ok with me painting it PINK!!!! Yep that is right i got away with a PINK coop :) he is sooo wonderful. Looking forward to making my chicks and duck the happiest ones around they are SPOILD for sure :)

That will be fun!

Also, I *think* that the Delawares lay a lighter brown egg than RIR, which will make it easy to tell who is laying what.

This is the first year that I have ever had white egg layers, and I LOVE having the contrast with the brown. I don't know why I never did it before.

The Ameracaunas are so pretty! But then, I also really like the RIR.

what am I saying, I LOVE THEM ALL!
