    Here they are. There is a little about each one by the picture. Theses ARE NOT all of my chickens, just a few. I want to show them at the fair but i dont know about judging or anything. They are probably just pet quality, but it sounds like fun, anyway! And yes, they do have an odd mix of names.

    This is Peter. He is a bearded Silkie cockeral. He is still very young but I think he is beautiful. <br>

    Here is D.A. (Destroying Angel). I absolutely love this bird. He is one of the youngest and he is very still for photos.<br>

    Isn't he/she just adorable? I don't know the gender yet, so no name. But this chicken loves to strike some pretty cute poses.<br>

    Here is Angel. My little barred rock pullet. I dont know how she and DA ended up with such similiar names. I just name when something comes to me.<br>

    I didn't think I could be so proud of a chicken. This is Big Mama. I cant tell her story enough. We sewed her up after an attack. Look at this beauty now!<br>

    There you guys go! This was just really for fun and to show off a few of my favorite pets.

    DA looks rather feminine to me. Has he/she crowed?

    no he hasnt crowed. i think DA is a pullet. the buff makes some freaky noises though. it sounds like a mix between a coyote and horse. do you think any of them could even place at the fair?

    Great pics! I enjoy seeing the different breeds. We loved our Barred Rocks.

    yeah, we might have to find a new home for angel. she scares the living daylights out of star, who is no bigger than a pigeon and although i love her, im not a barred rock person. i dont know. the weird ones love me, and i love the weird ones! by the way, can a chicken interbreed with another bird? i got this "chicken" that i swear is a mutated pigeon.
