    Tell Grandma she will fall in love, just like she did with your snakes, lol. Their eggs are the best! And they are so much fun to watch with their goofy personalities!

    Re: The chicken thread

    We do! Our flock currently consists of Speckled Sussex, Salmon Faverolles, Barnevelders, Easter Eggers, Barred Hollands, Australorps, Delawares, buff-laced Polish crested, several varieties of Cochins, silver & gold laced Sebrights, and dark Brahmas, as well as a few "chicken yard mixes" of the above. We absolutely love fresh eggs, and the occasional extra roosters make *great* dog food (or supper for us, depending on what's already in the freezers).

    3 of our 4 roos:

    Archimedes - Salmon Faverolles


    Gus - Barred Holland


    P2 - Gold-laced Sebright

    Pretty roo's. We don't have any roo's. I want a frizzle cuz their so goofy cute looking, but they only sell them straight run at my feed stores. Don't think my neighbors would appreciate a roo if I wound up with one, lol. Oh, almost forgot my Cuckoo Maran. Apparently I have no pics of her on my phone either.

    They really are!! And you wouldn't even believe how much brighter and almost orange yolks are, as well as how hard their shells are.

    I've had them in the past & absolutely adore them. Can't wait to get some again in the spring - fabulous birds!

    We have eyeballed silkies before too. We are limited on space though, and I really wanted the Sussex. Also, gotta love the green eggs, we have to have our Ameraucana. They don't seek to be as hardy as the other breeds though. Our first year with chickens, we lost one as a youngster to who knows what. Then last year we lost one to a bad prolapse. It was so bad I couldn't fix it and we had to out her down. About chicks in general when we first got them, they told us if you want 12, buy 14 because your going to lose some. Other than the ameraucana, everything else has made it just fine. Have abhor you given yours pumpkin guts? My girls favorite things are grapes, pumpkin guts, and watermelon.
