I picked up my order of 25 pullets from The Ridgway Hatcheries today and thought I would share the pics I took. Ridgway was only about an hour drive and they talked and talked all the way home. I was by myself and bored so I thought I would conduct a roadside experiment to pass the time. When they were at their loudest I would give them my best impression of a hen and all would go silent for a couple seconds. Then they would all get even louder until I did it again and then all would go silent again. I tried other sounds like whistle, hum, the radio with various types of music and nothing phased them like the hen noises. Oh well, I thought it was fun and it got me home from the trip. My order was for 25 all pullets 5 of each of: Rhode Island Red Silver Lace Wyandotte New Hampshire Barred Rock Araucana (at least that's what they call them) When I placed my order for them I asked about the Araucana's and asked if they were true Araucana's (rumpless) or if they had tail feathers and they told me that they did have tail feather's, so going into it I knew I was getting EE's. That is fine with me because the only reason for getting them was for my kids who wanted to see an egg layed that was something other than white or brown. Just thought I would mention it for anyone wanting to place an order on their website and expecting the "rumpless" type, you won't be getting those.
