    Well I finally gave in and decided to join a chicken forum so I figured it might as well be this one!

    Gold Laced Orpington Rooster, 6x Buff Orpington hens, Lavender Aracuana Rooster,2x Lavender Aracuana Hens, 3 x Fenton blue hens, Golden Silkie rooster, 4x Silkie Hens, 1 Golden Brahma Rooster, 5x Golden Brahma Hens, 7x Welsummer hens, 2x Barnevelder hens, 4x Cohin Hens, 20 x hybrid hens (Bluebells, blackrocks etc) Indian Runner Drake, 7x Indian Runner Ducks, 1 pair of white "farmyard" geese

    I've never heard of a Fenton Blue hen. I wonder if we don't have those here or if we call them something different.
