    Here is what I have so far. There are 16 chicks. I think a couple didn't make it in the pic

    We have a golden laced sebright, named Lacey that's awesome! She's very vocal and sweet she was flighty as a teenager but calmed down tremendously after she started laying. I have heard that cockerals can tend to be on the aggressive side but idk.

    3 toes. After some research I'm thinking Cochin as well. 5 of them are a white color and 1 is buff. I wanted something that would be broody, I think these will work fine.

    I had a golden laced sebright cockerel and he was VERY aggressive and flightly. Gorgeous bird, but not friendly at all!
