I love looking at pictures of peoples eggs! I don't know why but I just love looking at eggs.
Welcome to the club! Some people have such a stunning variety of colors, it's impressive. Here's what I've got in my own egg basket:
I'd love to see yours, too!
What hens layed those? My Jersey Giants actually haven't started laying yet! But im getting Olive Eggers & Maran Chicks Soon and I cant wait!!!
Olive Eggers and Marans are great! I've got both, but my OE hasn't started laying as of yet.
It's a variety of breeds who give us pretty eggs: dark chocolate brown - Black Copper Marans, darker brown eggs - Blue Splash Marans and Welsummer, light brown - anywhere from Wyandotte, Orpington, Rhode Island Red, Speckled Sussex, to Rock and Australorp and too many to name, various shades of green - Easter Egger and Mallard duck, blue - Cream Legbar, Easter Egger, and true Ameraucana, bright white - Golden Campine, Silver Spangled Hamburg, Black Sumatra, and Sicilian Buttercup, off white - various ducks. Those aren't all our breeds, but they're the main ones!
Do u chickens all free range together or do u separate by breed? I plan on doing that when I receive my marans and OE cause I don't want them getting mixed with each other or JG as I plan on selling chicks
They all are housed and free-ranged together as one big, happy flock! I understand separating them, though, if you're going to be breeding. I guess we haven't really done that because the purpose for our girls is just as pets and for our own personal enjoyment. So I take it you're getting straight run chicks just to get some roosters in the mix?
Yes straight runs hoping more hens then roos!!
Good deal! Where are you ordering from?
there is a chicken breeder out my way who raises many diff breeds and marans and oliver eggers are two of them its called "M&M Eggs" and they ship too
