Breed Highlight - Amber Link

This egg is from our faithful egg layer, Misty Dawn.  She is an Amber Link. She has been a wonderful member of our flock since the beginning. She is one of our first chickens from the beginning of our poultry raising journey.  She is one of my son's pets so she will stay with us until she passes.  She is currently 4 years old and still lays pretty well.  She has taken a few breaks but can still lay up to 3 or 4 eggs per week when she wants to.  In her younger days she was definitely one of the egg a day layers, even through the winter.  We easily got 5 to 6 eggs per week from her.

Her disposition has been pleasant as well.  She is a senior member in our flock but is generally non-confrontational and pretty much keeps to herself. If you are ever considering adding a dependable layer to your flock I would highly recommend the Amber Link.  We have really enjoyed her.
