Well I made my very first ever chicken purchase today


2 Salmon Faverolles
5 Golden Spangle Hamburgs
2 Partridge Cochins
4 Silver Penciled Wyandottes
1 White and 1 Golden Polish

Other than watching out that the Polish don't get picked on, does anyone see any other potential problem areas with this combination of breeds? They are all standard sizes and I have no idea yet what the genders are. I only needed about six hens and thought my chances would be better if I bought about twice that many.

I am going to do some surfing now to find out more specific breed characteristics, but would appreciate any other info you guys have to offer!

Congratulations on your purchase!! I would agree, that as long as they are raised together they should all be fine! Have fun!

Here's the first photo. My husband took these for me tonight.
I believe this is a Silver Penciled Wyadotte but please correct me if I am wrong.

My pair of Partridge Cochins. One is darker than the other. I am hoping I have a male/female here.


Everyone needs a hug!
