    Currently I have LF brahmas - love, love, LOVE my brahmas. I have seramas too, but will be rehoming all but one of them that I am keeping as a companion for my handicapped silkie/cochin cross. I also have an absolutely gorgeous white faced black spanish cockerel, that we call by alot of names, most of them not nice names. :p I intend for my youngest flock of chickens to be my last as I'm becoming more and more fond of waterfowl.

    In waterfowl I have a pair of geese - a tufted american buff and a brecon buff, 6 indian runner ducks and a pair of call ducks.

    It is my intention to one day have this farm overrun with geese...and my darling hubby just shaking his head and looking the other way. :)

    RiR
    Red Sex Links
    Black Australorps
    Black Sex Links
    Aracauna Easter Eggers
    Domineckers
    Wyandottes
    Red Cochin Banty
    Black Cochin Banty
    Black Bearded Bantys
    Serama
    American Game
    Old English Game
    Game/Banty mixes...
    65 +\- total, started w 77 last spring so not too bad a loss to predation, mostly chicken hawks, the 2 coops never been broken into. Play a radio 24/7, and a Great Pyrenees pup going into winter helps and will help with the 4 legged varmints.

    I have 8 female and 1 male Americanas/Easter Eggers
    4 female, 1 male production Rhode Island Reds
    5 Barred Rock females that are from a production line and are more like Barred Leghorns than rocks.
    4 crossed males, half Barred Rock and half Delaware, they are all brothers from the same hatch, my Sons of Pepper!!!!!!!!!
    2 6 1/2 year old rocks, one Barred and one Partridge that are retired, yet still pecking heads and taking names.

    That makes 25!!!

    I'm trying to get peeps next Spring, but have to set up in hubbies garage since my basement is off limits now to chickens.

    Still Waiting to Find Out--LOL!

    What I know I have (all Bantams) :

    1 Frizzle Black Cochin
    5 Black Silkies
    2 Splash Silkies

    The other 8 are still unidentified Feather-Footed Bantams, maybe some Brahmas or Cochins. One I would SWEAR was a Sultan as it has a topknot, but only has 4 toes!

    Does their leg feathering go all the way around the leg (cochin) or is it only on the outside (brahma)?
    Also, cochins have a single comb, brahmas have a pea comb.
