    I have twenty five chickens and three guinea hens.
    Plus I name all of my chickens and they are for eggs only.
    My oldest I call shady acres there is four hens one rooster, the rooster is a buff orpington so are two hens,
    there is one golden laced wyandotte hen we used to have three but two passed, and one partridge Plymouth rock hen same situation.
    My middle aged ones are one Delaware dorking rooster and one new Hampshire red hen that is far sighted.
    I have what I call the nursery and there is a mother australorp hen and her baby Delaware dorking new Hampshire.
    I have one new Hampshire rooster that is in a rabbits cage, fourteen anonymous genders of Blue cochins, salmon faverolle, buff brahmas, and speckled susex's. I would advise people not to get australorps I have three by the tracks and not for a good reason.

    Welcome to BYC. What do you mean when you say that "you have three by the tracks"?
