    I want to know what breeds of chickens you have. Roosters, Cockerels, Chicks, pullets and hens all included.
    Pictures would be great.

    Here are some of mine-
    This is my latest edition to the flock (no name yet) she/he maybe a WLH bantam.

    Linn Bee Chillin' With My Peeps

    Last year I bought chicks of just two breeds - Australorp and Light Brahmas. This year I ordered more of a variety. I now have 9 chickens and each is a different breed except for Nesco who is a cross hatched this May from my Lt. Brahma and Monte, an Australorp rooster.

    I now have one of each: Egglet - my Easter egger hen, Ranger - a cuckoo moran that looks more like a barred rock roo, Poachy - my cochin hen, Brownie - the black sex link hen, Chipper - a buckeye hen. They're all new this spring along with Brook - my last Lt. Brahma and Hilda - the only Australorp left. And my young roo, Nesco of course.

    A victim of chicken math, I quickly accumulated too many birds for my coop. Then I accidently met with someone who wanted adult hens the same day my DH 'suggested' I get rid of some of the chickens. I now wish I hadn't sold quite as many although at the time it seemed a good idea. My grandson, however, was thrilled that I now have room for more chickens next spring.

    edited to add: Yup, counting them only adds up to 8 birds. Bloody Mary - a 4-yo resucued white leghorn just passed away and I keep forgetting she can't be counted anymore.

    Love, Smart Red

    I love variety in a flock, one- it looks great and two- if you get any kind of disease you should always have some stronger birds than others that make it through.
    I like your variety i can imagine many colors, pictures would be great if you have any.
    Chicken math works very fast in my home, started with 10 hens now have 22 hens some chicks a rooster and am now getting ducks.
