Welcome! So glad you could join us! :frow

 

That is a lovely little flock. Silkies are awesome, and so are Ameraucanas! :woot

 

Your hens look a lot like mine. Just thought I'd add, most hens sold as Ameraucanas are actually Easter Eggers, which are lovely and awesome, but not the same thing.

 

 

Here is are Easter Egger (she was sold as an Ameraucana) named Eagle

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Very nice flock.  Olivia and Diva should start laying  soon,  you can put golf balls in the nest boxes to give them the idea.
