    Hello! Thought I'd introduce myself, I'm Amanda, from Ontario, Canada. We just picked up our first chickens this weekend.

    We have 1 each:
    - Speckled Sussex (Speckle)
    - Gold Laced Polish (Pippi)
    - Dark Brahma (Twilight)
    - Buff Brahma (Dixie)
    - Buff Orpington (Pumpkin)
    - Splash Cochin (North)
    (At least that's my novice option on what they all are!)

    Our children had a lot of fun naming them all. All of them are hens around a year old. So far so good, a few pecking order squirmishes, but no major issues yet!

    Will try to post pics below!
    I've been reading loads of posts and feel so much more enlightened then I did a few weeks ago that's for sure!
