It took a bit longer than exptected to get the run done (a week). They were fine, "cooped up" (hahahaha) for a week, the temps were ok, and we engineered the roof on one side so that we could prop it open to allow for ventilation.
Then, on Sunday, we opened the door for the first time.
Cuckoo Marans, they lay very dark brown eggs. The other white one in the picture has peach feathers on its chest.
Here is Eagle with the four red hens. One of the (the one on the right?) is ligher colored than the others, doesn't have puffy cheeks or greenish legs (like the rest of the Easter eggers do, regardless of color) and has pink legs. I'm not sure if she really is an Easter egger, but time will tell.
