Buff Orpington and White Leghorn, and a couple of cross breeds between the two that a mamma hatched and raised on her own.
Now Michael says he want a new batch of Ameraucana chickens. He misses the funny colored eggs.
Ameraucana are also known as Easter egg chickens. They can lay either pink, blue, or green eggs, and you never know which kind you will get. They also have neat little tufts of feathers that stick out from their heads and the rest of their plumage is also very attractive and unique. And the Roosters are something else.
The problem is, we have 15 chickens already and produce dozens more eggs than we can consume per week! Roughly 1 dozen per day. So we definitely don’t want MORE chickens.
Luckily we have Craigslist in our area.
It is very useful, because you can often find excess building materials for cheep, free firewood, free compost, and even farm animals.
So we sold the last of our Leghorns and the cross breeds to someone on Craigslist. 5 chickens down, so now Michael can go find some Ameraucanas….
He found turkeys instead! 🙂
