    I thought it would be really interesting to see how many chickens everyone has in their flock.
    I'm new to having chickens (only had our chicks about a month) and you all have been so helpful and fun!

    We have 8 chickens and 2 ducks in our flock. 6 Rhode Island Reds, possibly 2 Black Sex Links, a supposidly Buff Orpington duck and a possible Mallard Duck. They are a handful but we love them anyways. WELCOME to BYC! We dont know much but everyone here seems eager to help!

    We have 2 Barred rocks, 2 White leghorns, 2 Australorps, 4 Americanas, 1 New Hampshire Red, and 1 mystery. It was suppose to be another NHR but it has white and golden feathers. I'll post a picture and see if any of you know what it is in a week or two.

    I didn't include my meat birds in the count or I'd be in the 40+, and they aren't staying long anyhow.
    5 Easter Egger
    3 Australorp
    4 Silver Laced Wyandotte
    5 Icelandic
    3 Cream Legbar
    3 French Copper Marans
    4 Swedish Flower
    3 Svart Hona
    And 2 ducks!
