Eggs ! My New Flock Is Laying~

The first eggs from my new laying flock!
The chicks I received in the mail from Murray McMurray in April are now grown up, and within the next few weeks I should be getting eggs from all 19 hens.
 I have Silver Laced Wyandottes, Americaunas, Delawares,Cuckoo Marans,and White Orpingtons. I ordered all pullets, but one turned out to be a rooster. Thankfully he is a Cuckoo Maran rooster, and pretty mellow.
One of my 5 Americaunas.
 A Maran rooster & hen.
 Delaware hen.
 White Orpington. 
 A white Americauna. I suspect she laid the 3 minty green eggs.


  1. Thanks for sharing the photos of your chickens! What unique minty green eggs.

  2. Thank-you Judy. I like the minty green eggs, and am very pleased with the color because over the years of keeping Americaunas , dark to olive green are the shades of green my hens laid.

  3. Oh-my goodness, what a find!
    I am loving all of your beautiful hens, and the dapper fellow, too.
    Happy to bookmark this sweet blog!

    1. Thank-you Natalie! MY grandson & I are enjoying raising our poultry, and learning so much along the way.I do like that dapper Maran very much.A mellow fellow personality in a rooster is a good thing!
