We have a mixed flock of egg-laying breeds, including 2 Buff Brahma roosters, 2 Ameraucana roosters, 1 Buff-laced Polish rooster, 7 Buff Catalana hens, 7 Barred Rock hens, 7 Ameraucana hens of Assorted colours, 4 Buff Chantecler hens, 1 Black Silkie hen and 6 barnyard mix hens.   Some individuals have names, some do not.  The main flock have an enclosed yard, but on nice days, I like to let them free-range.  

I love my rainbow eggs.

This was supposed to be a hen named "Snow White", but when he turned out to be a rooster, his name was altered to "Snowman".

This is my favourite rooster, "Combs".  He was a gentle beauty, I miss him.

"Easter", an Ameraucana hen who jumps the fence and comes to get me whenever anybody in the coop needs food or water.  When I am on my way to the coop, she runs around my feet excitedly chatting.

"Brownie" was born in a classroom incubator, but hid a clutch of eggs in a mock orange bush.  She was an excellent mother of 17.  

"Sunshine", a Buff Chantecler, was a science fair experiment, hatched on the kitchen table.

"Sunshine" all grown up.

I love the polish girls.
