Last spring, my mother decided that she would like to get some heritage-type chickens for our yearly meat/egg replenishment, and since a friend of hers was hatching some, that's what she got.

Not the best as meat birds (very slow growers), but very pretty, all different colors, and she kept a few for eggs. There appears to be some Chantecler and some Auracana (sp?) blood in the mix. Which latter means we're getting...
Green eggs. And sort of olive ones also. I think I need to see about some ham (but pink, not green), just so I can tell people that I had green eggs and ham for breakfast.
My Autumn Rose progresses, albeit slowly. Julia helps by holding my book open.
