These girls have all laid at least one egg since they have been here, and they are all a very pretty color of greenish blue!
The next day, I decided to go get three more of the Black Copper Marans chicks since all three that I had previously gotten are boys. So, we went up the mountain in the fog and picked out three more chicks! We compared these to what we have, and hopefully we picked girls this time!
We were hoping that Clarabelle would take these guys in with her brood, but so far she isn't. We have them separated in a crate, so they can see each other and get to know each other, but she can't get to them to hurt them.
When these girls get old enough to start laying eggs, they should lay eggs that are a dark chocolate color! I am so excited!
