|Black Giant chicks|
|Silver Laced Wyandotte (like my favorite hen Queeny...)|
|A little mutt chick. I have a soft spot for mutts, including poultry.|
When these (again, hopefully) girls start laying, they'll produce a rainbow of egg colors--everything from white to brown to pink or green. In return, they'll gobble up table scraps, keep pesky bugs out of the garden and provide plenty of entertainment for grandchildren. And me.
And you? Would you ever consider keeping hens in your backyard?
