I buy fresh eggs from a friend I met at Sycamore Spirituality Center. She's the cutest young farmer you ever did see.
I hope one of my chickens will lay speckled eggs. I've read that it is a possibility but only time will tell. My hens are quite young, about 8 weeks old, and they will not start laying until around 20 weeks. This morning I was reading a favorite blog, Urban Gardens, and I saw a photo of a gardener with a young Dominique hen and I thought to myself, "How about that? I know what kind of chicken that is!" She looked just like my Dominique hen named Patsy Cline.
