    Hello! I have been surfing these forums for close to a year now every time I have questions or concerns about my new chickens, so I thought it would be smart to finally join already!

    My name is Danielle, and I reside in South Florida. I currently own 6 hens who all just started laying (3 Delaware's, 1 Speckled Sussex, 1 Black Jersey Giant, and 1 unknown...supposed to be a Giant as well, but my guess is possibly a Barred Rock?), and I also just purchased 2 Cochins...a Blue 4 week old and Black 3 week old. My main goal is eggs and secondary is meat...except for the Cochins. I was reminded many times by the breeder that they are show quality, so I'm planning to keep them for eggs and as pets. I'm very excited to learn more every day in this new venture!

    Here are some pictures of the coop and girls...

    Beautiful photos, your son really has his hands full with that chicken. You have some lovely breeds, I especially love cochins and blue is even better.
