    Hi, I'm Rachel, Rae for short.

    I currently have a flock of 7 on my allotment, I've had these pretty little freeloaders for about 6 months

    I also keep various other animals incl rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs and plan to add some ducks and quail to my little mini homestead next year

    Welcome to Backyard chickens. You may want to post your photos at "what breed or gender is this." to find out exactly what you have. Some breeds take longer till they start laying than others.

    Thank you for the warm welcome,
    the girls are 5 pekins that my neighbours chicken hatched and a Polish I did a swap for, I think the black frizle is a Cochin cross.
    I adore animals they make my life very busy but they're worth it :)
