    Hi, I'm Christine and have been enjoying my new little mixed flock so far. I've greatly appreciated the advice on this site the last couple weeks (especially about poops, medicated feed, and rose combs vs. single combs!) and look forward to participating. I have four pullets, about 4-5 weeks old I believe. (I've had them a little over 2 weeks and based on feathers I think the BO and SLW were about 2 weeks and the CM and PC were about 3 weeks or so.)

    Eggmelia (Silver-Laced Wyandotte)
    Hewegg (Cuckoo Maran)
    Chickodemus (Buff Orpington)
    & Henora/Sweetie Pie (Partridge Cochin)

    Each member of my family picked a breed and their names are variation on our names or middle names; my daughter is not happy about "her" chicken being named after her and insists on Sweetie Pie, but it really breaks up the theme! :-D I'm going to head over to the Raising Chicks forum now to ask about moving them out to their coop!
