Chickens II

I get two eggs a day right now with two laying hens and one about to start, they have deep orange yolks and taste delightful. I would encorage everyone who is able to grow there own eggs.
Red, the production red hen lays the darker egg, Henny Penny (I have no idea what she is, maybe a sex link) lays the pinkish one to the left, and the white one is store bought to show you the contrast.
Henny laid a double yoker last month, a monster of an egg.
This guy was abandoned by a bad neighbor, he survived the 8 degree nights we had this winter and was mean as hell. I sold him on craigslist because he was attacking everyone who came near him and crowed at all hours of the day and night. How he and Red came to live here is a strange story that still gives me nightmares, I'm glad its over, maybe some day Ill reminisce.

They are looking good. A Friend has been bringing us about a dozen eggs a week. They are sure good. Thank Goodness the rooster is gone, gone, gone.
