Who is Laying My Eggs?


Rhode Island Red

The Amazon woman of the yard, this lady will put up with cold or heat without a fuss. She is probably the first to venture over the freshly fallen snow in the winter.

Barred Rock

Barred Rocks are a heritage breed known for being dependable egg layers. They are heavier birds with full, plump feathers. Barred Rocks are very calm and docile.

French Maran

Quiet and gentle, this lady elegantly floats across the yard in her iridescent black and copper or grey plumage. She gifts us with her beautiful chocolate colored eggs.

Sapphire Gem

The Sapphire Gem is a cross between Blue Plymouth Rock and Barred Plymouth Rock chickens. Their feathers are lavender, blue, and gray. They lay large, brown eggs.

Buff Orpington

This plump, stately lady belongs in the palace. She struts her stuff across the barnyard and elegantly, but firmly keeps everyone in their place.


Wyandottes are calm and friendly, and they tend to be high in the pecking order. They lay large brown eggs.

Austra White

An Austra White is a cross between a Black Australorp and a white Leghorn. Australorps are known for being calm, and Leghorns are known for being excellent layers. So, the Austra White has the best of both breeds. Austra White hens lay white eggs.


This nervous nelly is probably making the most racket in the barnyard. You can spot her running around the yard by looking out for her crazy hairdo.

Easter Egger

Easter Eggers come in a variety of appearances. They can have any sort of comb and coloring in their feathers. Depending on the hen, Easter Eggers lay blue, green, and olive-colored eggs. She loves children and cuddles.

Red Sex Link

Red Sex Links are a cross between a Rhode Island Red and a White Leghorn. Red Sexlinks lay large, light brown eggs. The hens are light in weight, calm in nature, and excellent with people.

Naked Neck

The Cyndi Lauper of the flock. This lady has a style of her own. She definitely has more important things on her agenda: she “lays and leaves”, leaving her eggs to the care of the other hens.
