    I've recently moved to Florida to live with a friend, and he has 4 chickens (all laying females). Here trying to learn and to find answers to questions he doesn't have the answers to. :)

    A Silkie, and I keep forgetting what the others are. In the pic where they're in the aviary (usually occupied by cockatiels), there's a second one like the lighter-colored one that I don't have a pic of.

    I think those are Buff Orpingtons but I could be very wrong. Nice egg color by the way, I am jealous. [​IMG]
