    So I recently got 26 new chickens, adding to my 5 current ones(one white leghorn and four ISA browns). I don't have pictures of all of them, but here are the ones I do have:

    4 silver Sussex pullets, and 4 golden laced Wyandotte pullets(only one of those visible here)

    5 Lohmann Brown hens.

    5 black Australorp hens.

    Three Ancona hens. (and one rooster)

    1 Partridge Silkie chick.

    1 Buff Silkie chick. (I am praying both of these are girls)

    I also have 2 dorkings, no pictures yet though. I was wondering... are dorkings supposed to jerk their necks back and forward when they walk?

    Do all of the *Australorps* have that copper on the collar?
