    I just found these old pictures of our original hens. We still have the red star, and she's still pumping out eggs, at 6 years old. The Easter Egger (or brown egger, she layed brown eggs, but we didn't even know Easter Eggers layed green eggs back then), sadly died from a wound that got infected with maggots. We did everything we could to save her. We miss you, sweet Apolla.
    The black one we traded in for a Production Red, whom we also still have today. The black one, back to the farm for her!
    Here they are.

    All three:

    Apolla, our Easter Egger. R.I.P sweet baby doll:


    And Luna, whom we have today:
