Here are my chickens. I have 11 right now but I am hoping to add more soon.
I have 2 barred rock hens. Despite being 6 years old they still produce an egg around every other day. They are quite friendly and one of them especially will follow me around like a dog.
I also have 3 black australorp hens. They are very good egg layers and I can expect an egg from them every day. They are quite skittish and are scared of people (unless I am carrying treats.)
I have a single buff orpington hen. She is a good egg layer and I get a egg a day from her. She is very skittish and does not like people.
And here are the 2 OEGB X silkie birds. There is a pullet Skylar Anne (Skylar) and a cockerel Mighty Minnie (Minnie). Skylar is a good girl, a little shy and scared of being picked up but really sweet and friendly once she is picked up. She is lighter in her feathering and has the blue face and feet. Minnie is very people shy because he was raised by a broody for the first month or so of his life. He is darker with the pink comb and wattle. Update: He has recently started crowing and after some practice has started to sound more like a rooster and less like a choking chicken.
Another update: Skylar and Minnie have grown a ton in the last few months. Minnie has done grown a ton. He has been crowing almost non stop for the last month or so. Skylar layed her first egg about a month ago and has been laying one almost daily since.
Update: Skylar and Minnie are about the same.
Here are the 3 white leghorn chicks. They are very skittish and shy. They just moved out to the big coop and seem to really enjoy it.
Update: The chicks have grown a ton. After a couple of lessons about the pecking order they have learned leave the big chickens food alone and you won't get pecked.
Update: They have grown sooo much.
Update: They have been growing like crazy for the last couple of months. Here are some pics:
I will update with more photos whenever something new comes up.
