Blue Laced Red Wyandottes are here

When I saw photos of this breed of chicken, I went wild.

I know, it seems silly, right? It is just a chicken, you say.

Indeed, but wow, are these ever some pretty chickens.

There is something about starting into chickens that
compels one to find the right breed for them.

Blue Laced Red Hen

See there, now what did I tell you? How pretty are they?

So, I search high and low, and I finally found
someone with  them

We will be offering them from the Foley's in 2011



Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks, and look well to thy herds. For riches are not for ever: and doth the crown endure to every generation? The hay appeareth, and the tender grass sheweth itself, and herbs of the mountains are gathered. The lambs are for thy clothing, and the goats are the price of the field. And thou shalt have goats' milk enough for thy food, for the food of thy household, and for the maintenance for thy maidens

- Proverbs 27:23-27

"I know of no pursuit in which more real and important services can be rendered to any country than by improving its agriculture, its breed of useful animals, and other branches of a husbandman's cares."

- George Washington
