    I don't want roos. We are thinking about getting chicks. My dad says we can get chicks as long as we get some friers(or broilers I have no idea what you call them) with them :( that's what diets are for. What are good easter egg layers?

    Easter eggers are the name given to Americauna cross bred chickens. Americaunas lay blue eggs. Most of the hatchery Americauna stock are actually crossbred birds. They have been bred with brown egg roosters. This often means the hens will lay green eggs now, too. EE's can lay blue, several shades of green, pink and ivory eggs. But, they mostly stem from the Americaunas.

    White and pink too!

    I now have a Brown Leghorn and 3 Black Minorcas in my garage. All 4 were so old they were starting to feather out so the feed store was basically giving them away.

    As a result of the neighbor's dog, I have a ginormous Black Australorp in the garage with her chest sewed together with fishing line. She threw a helatious tantrum when she saw the baby chickies, plopped her big ol fat butt in their brooder and refused to leave. Since her fat butt took up 98% of their brooder, I moved the babies into the "sick pen" with her. She gathers them under her (whether they like it or not ) and won't let me or anyone else anywhere near them. It's hilarious...they are pretty much completely feathered but she stuffs them under her each night and during the day the one stands on her back while the other 3 hang out beside her.

    I love the markings on this Silkie's head!

    I think they are giving me the stink eye!

    This one perches on my fingers. <3

    I wish we lived close. I would sure give you some eggs!

    One of our roosters stays loose in the yard. This morning I noticed that he was walking funny. I saw that he had a string wrapped around his feet and the two were "hobbled" together. I got a net and chased him down; my DH was able to help me cut the strings off while I held him. That was one upset rooster! If I had not been able to get the strings off, I am afraid that he would have lost one of his feet due to lack of circulation. Poor rooster.

    My mom wants good layers, so we are thinking of bantam cochins. Any thoughts?

    Don't get a bantam cochins if you want eggs!

    Cochins seem to think 2-3 eggs a YEAR qualifies as earning their keep.

    I have a bantam Australorp that lays very well. My white-crested polish bantam lays nearly every day but they are itty bitty, teeny-weeny bird eggs! Very cute but it would take like 3 to make up a "real" egg.

    If you really want eggs, get standard Rhode Island Reds.
