A person who snuggles with chickens is simply an amazing, loving, caring person! ;) (I've snuggled a few myself) :nod:
Gorgeous breed! never had this type but have had Silver Laced Wynadottes! and black laced ones too!

:aww: Love your views!!

I belong to a facebook group of Chicken lovers :giggle: and when I asked a question about this breed was told (by one person) that they weren't really good egg producers :shrug: I had to respond that it was a good thing I'd chosen her for her looks :rofl:  All the different Wynadottes are lovely :iconlovenodplz:

lol, oh I always choose them for their looks! I had americanas and arucanas and they laid green eggs, no one wanted the green eggs :(  I loved them! they had bushy head feathers and foot feathers and I had a white one I named Phyllis Diller!

We talked about getting some for their egg color, but ended up getting snagged by these two's feathers :giggle: It will be interesting to see what they lay.  I loved the dark brown that Pepper laid - I think she was a Cochin (?) kind of a speckled black and white (hence the name Salt'n'pepper :giggle:)

I'd love to have green eggs!

The best laying breed and the most calm and sweet tempered chickens I have raised were Buff Orphingtons.
Their eggs were so big and brown and they are such lovelies to have around.  I am drawn to pretty feathers too!
My guess is they will lay lovely brown eggs for you! next spring get some more chicks and experiment with more breeds!
So much fun! :love:

Just looked them up - that's what Mustard looks like...I was never sure who was laying what when all three were laying (other than one was dark, lol, the other two were the same color/size but their shells were of different texture)  Now that I know for sure what Cajun's eggs are like (she's the only one laying right now) I kept a blown out shell for comparison if Mustard ever lays again :shakefist:
