    And tonight we went to get them and brought home six. We got six last Monday and the six tonight. we now have 2 Golden Comets, 2 sex-linked reds, 2 Plymouth Rock, 3 white Leghorns, 1 Silver-Laced Wyandotte and 2 Rhode Island Reds.
    I discovered tonight that I can't hear them peep... lost my high-frequency hearing when I was 20 in Vietnam. I didn't know they peeped that high though.

    I hope not...I hope I have enough customers to keep them at a good level.

    Thanks, it's a much different flock than I had originally wanted. My original plan was Welsummers and maybe New Hampshire Reds...I haven't any of either. Yet.

    No green or blue egg layers either. Sounds like a trip back to the feed store.
    Welsummers. NHR are close enough to RIR.

    Eggs for breakfast, and a few for the loved ones! You shouldn't have a problem. Red sex links are my favorite breed. They are so personable and the best layers!

    Apparently several of our birds should lay a lot of eggs...the RSL and the GC are supposed to be serious egg layers I see.
