    Thanks! I've been pretty curious about #8. I'm pretty sure they are all single combs. #5 is a batnam, but it does look pretty similar to 9, but 9 does have more prominent black markings on his/her beak than 5. #11 is a guinea, just wondering if anyone might be able to identify what kind. Cochins have feathered feet don't they? #3 is the only one with feathered feet.

    #3 is the only one with feathered feet. Also, I'm working on coop plans. We've got these 11 chicks, 3 three week old RIR pullets, 4 brown Leghorn hens, and some kind of rooster. These are free ranging. How well are the younger ones going to integrate? Would it be better to build 1 coop, or multiple? And yes, the flock is ever expanding. Obviously lol.

    It always takes awhile to integrate flocks, having multiples and fairly even numbers of birds usually makes it go smoother, nice BYC article on integrating https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/adding-to-your-flock I've always liked multiple coops, or at least one main coop and a smaller one or two, if you ever plan on breeding it gives you a place to segregate the breeding birds out, if you get new chicks it gives you a place to grow them out, sick pen, broodys etc. Multiple coops does mean you have to duplicate some stuff, waterers, feeders etc.

    I am planning on having a quarantine pen/run and another place for chickens I'm not comfortable with free ranging for whatever reason. I think my biggest problem is I don't know when to stop because land is not an issue anymore. We've keep winding up with more chickens and I want ducks, geese, turkeys, and emus at some point.
