Chicken Population Growth

The population of our chicken coop has grown.

The three original ladies (back to front: Clueless, Lady Lazarus ["Lazzie"], and Princess) have some new housemates (coop-mates?).

Lazzie is a Silver-Laced Wyandotte, which means tan eggs. The white ones are Leghorns. White eggs, but lots of them; possibly as many as the other three combined.

The new girls (Duchess and Lady, left and right) are Barred Rocks, a variation of Plymouth Rocks. They'll give us plenty of brown eggs. In fact, someone has said that most brown eggs available commercially come from Barred Rocks.

We have some room for growth in the "Welcoming our guests" category.
