    I've had chickens for many years now but have never owned a white egg layer. I've always stayed far away from the Mediteranean breeds because of their flighty and not so friendly disposition. I would like to have a couple white eggs to add to my egg basket. I currently have brown and green layers and will soon have some dark brown marans eggs. Are there any friendly easy-going white egg layers out there?

    I have anconas, and they are great White eggs layers. They are sweet birds. I just love them,a nd their coloring is gorgeous.

    Another white egg layer I have that I just adore, I my Silver Spangled Hamburg Hen. She is just a gorgeous bird, and just so sweet!

    I forgot about anconas, they are beautiful birds. I think I'll get some. Where did you get yours?

    I got my anconas with my first batch of chicks that came from McMurray Htachery.
