    Brown egg layers and they are pretty good layers, but not super awesome good. I have had them, but I can't now because they hurt my eyes too much.

    I feel like I was mean to you. Sorry, but they just freak me out. They are good chickens though and some people just love getting things that are unusual. I mean I have a few chickens that lay blue eggs and have no butts.

    I intend to add a few turkens, maybe more, to my flock this spring. I'm getting them because I've read many tales here on BYC about their sweet dispositions. Personality trumps looks in my book every time. [​IMG]
