This old- time favorite lays brown eggs and is a popular dual- purpose breed. This breed is very friendly and does well in cold weather. Plymouth rocks have high egg production, a meaty body, a docile personality, and good hardiness all characteristics that would be a great addition to your flock! These lovely birds have black and white barred feathers, with the roosters slightly lighter in color than the hens.
We're raising chickens at our house! This little lady is on our list of chickens wants. She's a black copper maran. This kind of chicken lays chocolate colored eggs! Eggs can come in lots of cool colors and next year I hope to have enough chickens to get natural Easter eggs--no dyes needed!
