"Deathlayers aka Westfalische Totleger is an ancient German breed of chicken. A translation of its German name Totleger, means "death layer". This stunning breed is said to lay eggs until the day it dies! The history of this breed goes back more than 400 years. Their population has declined drastically over the centuries."

I don't honestly expect them to lay an egg every day from the day they start laying - but they are supposed to be great layers. And, I think they're cool!

Jubilee Orpingtons are really pretty. I also ordered hatching eggs from Chocolate Laced Orpingtons.

For now, I will just live vicariously through your efforts. 😀

I hope you get great hatching results. Then there might be a steady stream of us coming to buy chicks from you in a year or two......... :lol:
I hope I do too! I need to be careful NOT to count my chickens before they hatch, lol. But, I'd be thrilled to have enough to share some day!
