    Hello,

    My wife & I like raising chickens for various reasons.

    Most importantly, fresh eggs are better then store bought eggs.

    Lately we've been collecting a flock of pullets which will produce different color eggs.

    So far we have Jersey Giant, Ameraucana, Buff Orpington, Blue Andalusians, Cuckoo Maran, Welsummer Chicks.

    We've been thinking about Isbars. Later we might consider cross breeding to create new shades of colors.

    We live in Corpus Christi but make trips to San Antonio Texas often to visit family or attend events.

    Well...thanks for reading our post and we are looking forward to sharing pictures of our future eggs and pullets.

    Very nice to meet you Sal & Mandy, welcome to Backyard Chickens. You are going to have a beautiful egg basket once they all start laying.
