Oops... I did it again.
Maybe this time I should say,
Ooooooopps... I did it AGAIN!
So last time I introduced you to my 3 Marans and 1 Ameraucana; Ella, Etta, Bessie & Billie...
(They are doing great, by the way.)
This time, I am happy to introduce to you their brooder mates.
We (perhaps I should say, "I" but "we" sounds so much less incriminating) have added 3 Salmon Faverolles and 2 Easter Eggers.
The Salmon's are Chenille, Chiffon and Chambray. :-)

She looks like she's about to "Do the Locomotion."

Next are the Easter Eggers, Caramel & Truffle.
Easter Eggers are a mix breed chicken designed to lay colored eggs (anywhere on the spectrum between blue, blue-green to olive green.) These will likely lay blue eggs, because they were sold as Ameraucana chickens (a breed that lays blue eggs)... but they are clearly NOT Ameraucanas. I knew that as soon as I saw them, and was OK with getting Easter Eggers because I want to add more colors to my egg varieties... but I feel bad for people who don't know the difference (which apparently includes this particular hatchery.)
Just to show you the difference, here is a picture of the two new Easter Eggers next to the one true Ameraucana I have. Clearly, they are not the same breed. I was hoping to get Billie Holiday a couple of like-breed friends, but that just isn't the way it worked out.
