In July 2012 we imported 40 hatching eggs from the Icelandic Chicken preservation flock at Húsatóftir farm in Iceland. Here are our 24 chicks at 3-weeks old:
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.
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.
