    You guys are awesome - my dd has her eggies on the way. [​IMG]
    NOW -- Hubby has decided he wants a breed of chickens. [​IMG]
    We went to the chicken show in Little Rock on Sat. He kept talking about these big black chickens with white on their ears. I named off just about every bird I could think of that I remembered seeing there. I was kinda of numb after coming home to dead turkeys and ducks from a dog attack. [​IMG] Anyway -- I finally went to feathersite and started showing him birds. Ended up it was the black Penedesenca that caught his eye. [​IMG] Go figure - it wasn't your run of the mill breed. It has to be one that is hard to find. [​IMG] BUT-- He has always supported me and my birds ------ So now I am on the search for his Penedesenca - he only wants black. He didn't even know that they lay a dark egg [​IMG] he just seen the birds and fell in love with them. So if anyone can lead us in the right direction - we appreciate it [​IMG] [​IMG] Thanks
