Don’t worry, I won’t be changing this to a chicken blog, I promise, but, look! I got more chickens.
I saw an ad on Criagslist a few weeks ago for Welsummer and Cucko Maran hens for sale and I couldn’t resist.
The reddish ladies are the Welsummers and the black and white girls are the Cuckos. They all lay dark brown, speckled eggs, and the Welsummers are beautiful, but very chatty.
For those of you keeping count, that makes ten hens, meaning that at prime egg-laying season in the spring, we’ll be getting 10 eggs a day. Omelet, anyone?
