Freeloaders! Four of these beauties are Blue Laced Red Wyandottes. One is an Ameraucana aka an Easter Egger. Yes, we understand that there are MANY ways to sustain their egg production through the winter with lights & other amenities. We ALSO know that these breeds are not conducive to the "Egg-a-day" breed. (If you are looking for info like that THIS BOOK even for adults is a good place to start!) I solely bought these chickens for their beauty & that they are.
This coming week, these ladies will be finding a new home. I'll hate to see them go, but we will be much happier when they're gone. Also, with our new restaurant schedule that will start soon, we just want to cut down on what we give our energy to & because they are literally turning our $$ into chicken poo and not eggs, it was an easy decision.
So farewell sweet ladies. GOOD RIDDANCE! (I may cry they day after they leave...be prepared.) This chicken math is going in the WRONG direction!
