Chick Days

Dark Brahma hen
Nellie, the Dark Brahma

Did you know that Dark Brahma chickens have feathered feet? I have two Dark Brahma chicks, Nellie and Jolene. They are very noisy and energetic. When they are older, they will lay brown eggs. It is going to be interesting to see what my girls look like as they get older. I cant wait until they start laying!

Golden Laced Hen
Golden Laced Wyandottes are beautiful birds and great layers. I chose them for the show bird category. Doris and Ingrid, my Golden Laced Wyandottes, are very playful and friendly. When they start laying, they will lay big brown eggs. This breed is considered rare, so we are lucky to have two of our very own!

  1. I enjoyed seeing you two and meeting Nellie and Ingrid! Thank you!!

    1. Thanks for coming and being a loyal Golden Egg customer! Hopefully you'll see them at the fair this summer.

  2. I'd like to know where you get the rare birds...Do you have to look online for a supplier, or what? And, an even MORE important question, how do you decide on their names? Keep up the good work.

    1. We drove up to a special hatchery in Webster City. They specialize in rare poultry. What beautiful chickens do you see in India? We'd LOVE to see some photos! Do they have lots of different colors of eggs?
      We named our chickens after book characters, suggestions from friends and found some names online. Next year you can name one!
