Memories from my childhood - Chooks

Today’s egg tally was a whopping five!  (Three Ameraucana, one Buff Orpington and one Cuckoo Marans.)  I’m still waiting on the Ideal 236 pullet (a white egg), the Black Sex Link (a brown egg), the Rhode Island Red (another brown egg) and the two Silver Laced Wyandottes (also brown eggs).   154 more words
