    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.

    Probably buff orpingtons, I have to find out more about my fourteen others but so far I like the faverolles. I was supprised oneday to find out
    that Australorps are in the buff orpington family they are more so aggressive.

    You can read reviews on the breeds you have, there are a lot of members that have written their experiences with them. There is also an ongoing breed focus project where every 2 weeks or so, a specific breed is highlighted (you can find these using the search box).

    Good luck with your mixed flock and thank you for joining us!

    You may want to post photos of your unknown birds at "what breed or gender is this," to get their opinions. They are very good at what they do. Welcome to BYC
