Oh I just might have to do that! I used to live over by Montrose, so I knew when you said "Murdoch's", I might be in for a drive .... Oh but a beautiful and well worn drive it is; I miss the western slope! Me too! I love my EEs; they do really well in the cold; must be the beards lol So sorry to hear about your pullet I had a Hamburg do that a week ago, out of the blue; stinks, she was a breeder too. Why is it always one of the favorites? How did you manage to breed blue layers of blue eggs? Same as Whiting in a roundabout way?
