we ended up with 13 hens and 5 roosters. the roosters do a very good job of protecting the hens - especially from daisy dog. at first, she was a little aggressive with them, but after being pecked a few times, everyone is living happily together.
i am allergic to eggs, so i unfortunately, haven't had the pleasure of trying them... but hubby seems to like them. they are perfectly white and slightly small. the white hens are the ones laying, so it will be interesting to see what the other breeds produce. i've heard some chickens can even lay purple eggs!
have a good weekend friends - if you are in town and would like a dozen eggs, give us a holler! xoxo
