My parents had a frame shop where I worked a lot when I was in high school and college. There was one guy who was in love with his chickens. We would try to steer him toward "chicken appropriate frames" but he would have nothing but the fanciest, most ornate gold leaf ovals for them.
Your chickens look every bit as good as his ladies! So if you decide to frame the pictures....
Things seem to have quietened down a bit in the coop. The white ones are still exerting their power (or trying to) but the brown ones are becoming less lady-like about the entire thing.
The brown are called 'Barnevelders' here because of the name of the town (Barneveld) where they are supposed to come from and are - as you said - good layers.
We are getting an average of 4 eggs per day from the 5 of them.
Russ, I showed dh the photos of your chickens yesterday and he loved them.
