    Well.. my list is short (but my girls are beautiful [​IMG] )

    Barred Rock - 4
    New Hampshire Reds - 4
    Rhode Island Reds - 2

    Silkie x Americauna - 3

    Felt Hubby out for free Roo in the newspaper (Blue Cochin Bantam) but... his response was pretty lacksidasical. He hasn't gotten over our last roo (Bearded Blue Splash Belgium d'Anvers). Neither have I, in truth, but I've always felt a replacement helps the healing.
