    I'm kinda sorta new, I usually google my questions and it always leads me to answers from all of you wonderful people so I thought, after four months, why not become a member! :D This year my fiance and his family bought me nineteen chicks and built me a chicken mansion and now my chickies are starting to lay so I have a feeling I'm going to have loads more questions coming soon!

    My Chickies are as listed:
    Two Rhode Island Red Roosters (Joker and Deadpool)
    One Rhode Island Red Hen (Harley) I used to have two hens but an incident with a raccoon ended with us losing three chickens
    One Silkie Rooster (Viserys) He's the king of the coop since his bigger brother King Aries died in the battle with the raccoon
    One Silkie Hen (Daenerys) The queen of the coop since her big sister Lyanna died protecting the bannies from the raccoon
    One Old English Red Pyle Bantam Rooster (Ghost because he was originally all white then started browning in as he got older)
    Silver Sebright Bantam Hen (Gray Wind) Yes we like Game Of Thrones but her name really matches her because she loves to "fly"
    Golden Sebright Bantam Hen (Shaggy Chicken) Originally Shaggy Rooster till we realized she was not a rooster.
    White Laced Red Cornish Rocks (Craster) Because he is the only one who hates me even though I was the only one at the store that wanted him. I honestly think it's because I'm a woman because he has no problem with my fiance or his dad.
    Seven Isa Brown Hens (Pearl, Cat, Arya, Sansa, Summer, Lady, and Nymeria)

    And as of today those are my pretty chickies :D

    Welcome to Backyard chickens! That is quite the variety you have there! I personally do not have any of those breeds, but I am hoping to get silkies! I hope you enjoy Backyard chickens and have as much fun on here as I have.

    Welcome to BYC! It's great to have you.

    The roosters you call "White Laced Cornish Rocks" are actually neither Cornish nor Rocks, they are Red Sex Links.
