    I actually know nothing about any of them.

    So here's my chicken history...3 years ago when we bought our house, the chicken coop "came" with the house. So for mother's day my step daughter gave me an assortment of chicks. The chicks came from someone she knows but unknown breeds. I knew I had a Barred Rock, Easter Egger and I think Rhode island red. Out of the 8 she gave me only 2 were hens. Anyways, the roos were long gone and I have had the 2 hens since.
    Martini was a black Easter egger and she was a good layer until a few days ago when something got her.
    Sweetheart is my brown hen who used to lay brown eggs but had stopped for quite a while now, not sure why.

    Ah! :barnie

    I have an Amerecauna you can have! Once you have a roo they will lay you EE eggs! :D EEs are gorgeous!!!! Thinking about putting my Amerecauna roo with my Jubilee Orpington to see what colors/patterns I get.

    On the ducks, I remember you saying you needed something that was a more quiet breed (hence the Muscovy Convo).... My Rouens are the quietest I have. Their talk is more muted and they don't actually quack much. They are the standard size or domesticated breed of Mallard. Shannon's calls are amazing! If and when you get into ducks you will fall in love! They are soooo entertaining!:weee
