I think Speckledies are lovely hens. They lay a nice lot of eggs which increase in size in their second year. If given the choice I would go for the ones with a white head as I think they make a more attractive hen.

Most of these are in their second year and still lay on most days

Jan,
your first pic looks like Mrs Kitchen
she's a right character and loves to wander in through the window - hence her name :D

Hi Debs, Mrs Kitchen is a lovely name. :) My little girl is called White Head. She came as a day old with another called Black Head to keep a lone duckling company. When I got home with them the duckling was dead. :( No laughing please. This is very sad stuff :wink:

they look loads better with white heads
she's broody at the minute, pinching everyegg she can find :?
she is such a character, pecks on the window when she wants to come in :shock:
