    Currently, we have 1 buff orpington hen (Granny), 3 buff orpington/rhode island red mix hens (Taffy, Vanilla, October), 2 buff orpington/rhode island red roosters (Snickers, Eagle), two polish hens (Tokitae and Lolita) and one polish rooster (Calypso). We just lost a BO/RIR mix hen to a heat spell last week [​IMG]
    I don't have pictures of everyone anymore, but I do have some! The polishes are new and I don't have many pictures of them yet, but I'll share what I have!

    Here's our flock of mix hens and roos, back when it was larger than it is now.

    And our mix roosters, Eagle and Snickers!

    And african and/or chinese geese!

    I'm curious about the temperament of everyone's polish roosters and african/chinese geese. Our geese are terribly mean, and so far, Calypso seems to be friendly, but will it last? I'd love to see pictures of everyone else's polishes, they're my favorite breed!

    I've not met many friendly geese. I've met many friendly ducks! I also have a Buff Orpington. I hope when she's all grown up she's as beautiful as yours. Lovely group of pets.

    Thanks everyone! [​IMG] We just got 6 more hens today of various breeds, one being a speckled sussex - another breed I've always wanted!

    [​IMG]

    The two black ones are named Asuka and Athena; Athena is a black australorp, and Asuka is a black copper maran.
    The white one is Freya; she's a delaware.
    The tan ones are Kohana and Kiva, they're mixes.
    The speckled one is Lupa; she's a spotted sussex.
