    They are clean legged, about one year old and lay an orangey tan egg, not the deep brick brown of my other birds. The seem to carry cuckoo and pass it to the cockerels, so if you are wanting to breed them I wanted to disclose that fact. The egg shown was laid by one. The other was moulting but they lay the same color when they are both laying you can't tell their eggs apart. $30 for one $50 for both. Local pickup only.

    This is an egg from one just coming back into production. They get lighter later on during the laying cycle.
