The chickens showed are Araucanas, New Hampshire, Orpington-buff en Leghorn Light-brown.
You can see hen and rooster of al these chickens. The first type is a bit different then the normal chickens you see. Maybe you only see the one in the supermarket, they are not of these types.

So I am also a member of a Dutch Stampsite. Johan the moderator and owner did made some Personal stamps for the benefit of Greenpeace. He is selling the stuf on Ebay and add the nett result to Greenpeace. Show you the stamp. It is says to you : 2006 Thin Ice and 2036 No Ice. If you like these stamps you can still bid on them. Think it's a nice way to make some money for Greenpeace. You also can see the results for them on the site of Greenpeace.(The Netherlands)

Who are the beasts??
Mother’s is about 90 kg , the father could be a 250 kg. They live in the zoo; I mean there are also about 670 of them left in the National Parks of Uganda, Rwanda and D.R. Congo. Their habitat is still getting smaller and smaller, we mankind, beasts of this world, need war and collector items of these nice animals, so we have no left soon. Germany makes me happy with such a stamp. 2 Currencies , collect them too.

Nice chickentype Plymouth Rocks. At the first American Poultry-show in Boston ( 1849) there seem to have been some lage cuckoo-like fowls on display. In 1874 the barred Plymouth Rock were admitted to the American Standard. In 1880 the first Rocks came to England and in 1882 to The Netherlands.
They do go broody. The light-brown eggs weight 60-70 gram. The chickens 3000-4750 gramme.
Thanks to the nice book : Poultry Paintings 1890-1968 from the famous Dutch Chickenpainter mr.C.S.Th. van Gink.
Offered by the Board for poultry and Eggs in The Netherlands.

I do have also some of these chicken-easter cards. This one I got today from my friend John J.
The card has also a relief , the flowers, chickens and eggs. Strange to have always coloured eggs on such cards. Where does that come from? The card has a cancellation 03-20-1909 from Rudolph. Ohio 6PM
Also label this with easter so that you can find them in time. Maybe a little soon after Christmas, but as you know. Time is running when you are over 50……

So our nice neighbours who were here to give the best wishes for 2007. They told us that her little daughter got a nice book from French friends for the Christmas. There were also a lot on the packaging. Nice you have them for me, I asked? O forgotten.. I said they must be in the paper bin (we have a big one for 1 month of paper, board and textile, recycling is good for the world) but don’t give yourself any trouble. Next time better……
Later on the little one shows up with this MS. A small folding, but nice to have…… The neighbour's wife went upsidown in the paperbin to get it out.
They will save the stamps they receive for me, let’s wait and see.
