I have a mixed flock of hens and one rooster. He's a handsome grey and copper Ameraucana; the hens are Isa Browns ("production" layers, but really nice little brownish-orange birds), Turkens (really weird looking), Buff Orpingtons, Barred Rocks, one Silver-Laced Wyandotte, and a trio of Ameraucanas. The Ameraucanas lay light blue eggs, the rest lay shades of brown and beige.

I also have three Muscovy ducks and one drake. The ducks lay big delicious eggs too. The bottom field is flooded right now, and the ducks are in their glory, paddling around our "seasonal lake".
