Ladies In The Yard

Two of our girls taking a minute to enjoy the afternoon together. Connie, on the left, is a Cuckoo Maran. She's "retired" now but when she laid her eggs were a lovely dark brown. Among chicken and egg enthusiasts contests for the darkest and most beautiful Maran egg (they can be a dark chocolate brown) are a highlight of fairs and bird shows. On the right is one of our Buff Orpingtons, a heavy breed known for  their calm and friendly personalities. They are so alike it's hard to name each one. James calls them "the Honeydrops."
