Here are some pictures of the full grown chickens from our imported Icelandic chicken flock. You may see our two brown-egg layers in there as well, a Jersey Giant and a Silver Laced Wyandotte that supply eggs for our breakfast table. We chose brown egg layers so there would be no risk of confusion with the white and cream Icelandic eggs.
Álfur is a Húsatóftir boy with a comb that looks like a mix between a rosecomb and a double comb.
The boy in front is Klaki, another Húsatóftir cock with a big single comb and a lovely light buff color.
Nýmus is a second-generation silver wheaten Hlésey cock.
Roði the Húsatóftir boy to the far left and Erna, the light speckled hen in the back have found a home with author Harvey Ussery in Virginia. The buff columbian is a Húsatóftir lady with green legs named Bína and the buff and blue mille fleur on the right is a Húsatóftir hen named Birta.
There is no shortage of blue in our flock.
The Húsatóftir boys work together to take care of their ladies.
Our Húsatóftir cocks get along very well and are caring and dedicated flock protectors and providers.
Birta the Húsatóftir mille fleur.
Skráma, the blue hen standing between the two cocks, is from the Hlésey line.
Klaki has a lovely cream color on him.
He is a bit of a poser.Kara, a buff columbian Hlésey hen.
Aska Rós is a creasted and rosecombed Húsatóftir lady.
