It’s the right time of year for putting in our orders for spring chicks. I’m hoping to add two new breeds to our flock this year – the Cuckoo Marans and the Buckeye. I want the Marans for their deep, chocolate colored eggs and the Buckeyes because they are the only American chicken developed completely by a woman (maybe the only chicken). Feminist chickens!
Here is an example of a Buckeye rooster (Walter the Buckeye Boy) I found on flickr. Isn’t he beautiful against that purple background?
