    These are my girls, the only one not pictured is a rhode island red I believe. Not sure what the rest are lol. I know I love them and that is all that matters to me. ;) but if you know what they are, it would be cool to know. We just picked a variety of colors and the one in the far back right that is getting a drink from the ducks pool has puffy long feathers on top of her head and she is a little smaller than the rest.

    I just noticed these little cool boxes under your names, "greeter", "platinum" and such. How do you get these?

    They will be 6 months old on the 14th. Born around Valentines day. Some have been laying the last couple of weeks and the others are just starting. ;)

    Thanks for the pics. You have a beautiful flock of girls. I see what appears to be a Silver Laced Wyandotte (in the foreground), two Black Australorps, three Rhode Island Reds, and one that I'm not sure of the breed. Black Australorps are my favorite standard breed; very hardy, calm and gentle, and the best layers of the standard, brown egg laying breeds. Good luck with your flock.
