We have a few “Bresse” chickens. Well, they’re officially not Bresse chickens because they have to come from Bresse to get that name. They’ve got an official name of “bresse-gauloise” although I’ve never heard anyone use it here. This guy below is called Chanteclairix.
They seem nice enough. The hens are friendly, the coqs are protective and they all have cool blue feet. They are famous for their meat but we haven’t eaten one yet.
But the hens lay eggs, of course. The first of the pullets have started laying so we’re getting a couple of little eggs each day. They are an off white. Here is one sitting on a pile of eggs from our random house chickens.
It is fun to get white eggs again. It will make Easter egg coloring so much easier.
