new chickens- big golden buff orpington is Merigold (named first for Merigold, MS, secondly for her color). She's at least 8 lbs. Big girl.
Next to her is "Speckles," a barred rock. She's medium size, no larger than my sweet pet chickens. These ladies aren't tame. Yet. They'll come round.
and one of their eggs- I think it belongs to Merigold. It is extra, extra large. Edna's egg, to the right, is a regular large grocery-store sized egg. Merigold's was twice as large. I thought it might have been double yolked, but it wasn't. The yolk was large and a big asymmetrical, but not fully double. They haven't gotten hang of the idea of nest boxes yet- this was on top of a stone in the yard.
I'll be back later in the week with some pictures of pottery, I hope.
Have a nice week!
