Just as I got back to Edenlight last evening a truck pulled up containing Joan The Chicken Queen, who was driving, and a crate of 7 young pullets (hens) which she asked me if I wanted.   I wasted no time thinking about it: IMG_2407The perfect tonic for my aging flock. They are a mix of Penedesanca, Cuckoo Marans, and Ameraucana. They will produce dark brown, blue, and green eggs. Without ham.
