I was wanting more chickens, and not real particular about the breed. Really, I just thought it would be nice to have some easter eggers of some sort. TO have pretty eggs. I called about an add in the paper advertising all sorts of breeds. The man listed off several breeds he had. I asked him about easter eggers and he said that he had some aracaunas. Cool beans! I went to his house this morning to get them and discovered he keeps them all together in one pen, and they're mixed breeds. But he did say they lay all different color eggs, he just couldn't guarantee what color I'll get. Dh fussed at me for buying mutts. I got 7 1mo olds and 3 guinea keets for $27. Do you think that was a bad deal?
