Warner Chickens!

I have been late in posting about our new chicken crew.   They are already almost 4 weeks old!



I ordered 15 chickens from Murray McMurray Hatchery online.  Fifteen is the minimum order and then they send you one bonus chick.   I ordered the three varieties so I could tell who was laying what.

5 Cukoo Marans - Black and white chicken from France
Hens
Eggs: DARK chocolate brown
Dual Purpose - eggs and meat
Feet: Pink-ish grey
Personality:  a bit cranky so far!


5 Silver Laced Wyandottes - black and white chicken with pretty lacy pattern
Hens
Eggs: regular brown
Dual Purpose - eggs and meat
Feet: yellow
Personality:  calm and sweet




5 Ameraucanas - Multi-colored brown with puffy cheek feathers
Hens
Eggs: GREEN/BLUE!
Dual Purpose - eggs and meat
Feet: green/grey
Personality: dominant, curious, and sweet




1 Transylvanian Naked-Necked Turken
(Rooster?? - who knows don't know the sex!)
Eggs: brown
Dual Purpose: - eggs and meat
Feet: yellow
Personality: kind of a loaner... very fast and flighty but sweet

The rest of these pictures were taken when I took four of them out in the front yard for the photo-shoot and a little time in the grass.  They stuck pretty close to me...
