    Hi y'all! I'm a newbie [within the last year] at having a chicken family! I have 17 in my flock.... 2 three year old bantams, one being a Golden Seabright and the other a BB Old English (so I believe). Then there are 2 RIRs, 2 Barred Rocks, 2 (what I think are) Black Marans, a Buff Orp, a White one (?) Unknown - lays cream to light brown eggs, not white , a Black & white one (?) Unknown - don't know what color eggs (she was almost all black as a chick). Those 9 were given to me and raised from chicks. I have acquired a white Silkie banty, a white ? (Speckled) banty, 2 Silver Seabright banties. There are 2 banty roos in my flock, one being a Silver Seabright and the other a brown Silkie. I'm looking forward to learning more thru BYC!
