These are the chickens who provide us with fresh, delicious, free-range, colorful eggs. They live just a mile or so from our place and when I picked up another 2 dozen the other day, they were out in the yard. I had my camera so decided to see if I could get a few pics. Little did I know that chickens love to be photographed! They came running toward me and I nearly had to back up to get them in focus.
They really are colorful – see? Here’s a link to Henderson’s Handy Dandy Chicken Chart. It gives you all kinds of info about the breeds, their origins and the color of the eggs.
