Nice! Very nice mix of breeds there. Are all those silkies hens? The white ones a roo right?
The black, buff, and partridge are hens. The boy is white and so far from SOP its not even funny. I want to find a partridge male thats more to standards so I can get rid of the white silkie rooster.

Cute little group. Looks a lot like my flock as mine is kinda a mishmash of what was available.
Thanks. My daughter and I sat and looked online at breeds the were cold hardy and ordered a mix. I have 2 white cochins, 1 silver lakenvelder, 1 golden lakenverder, 1 barred rock, 4 silkies of different colors, 1 easter egger, 1 splash andalusian, 1 red chicken that a neighbor found , and my ducks. 5 mallards, 1 pekin, and 1 pekin mix .

I have a pair of polish white crested black, a Delaware Roo, a production Red, a buff rock banty hen, and 4 Silkies - a pair of red and a splash hen and a blue Roo. I think he's blue anyway. I swore I'd never have Silkies. Lol. I've ordered some Jersey Giants, buff orps and red laced polish to arrive end of April. Should bring me to about 22.

Sounds like a great mix. My daughter want a breeding pair of polish. We have 21 chicks ( hatchery choice), 2 ducks, 2 geese, and 2 turkey coming in April, and 3 mallards, 16 quail, and 4 pekin eggs in the bator. That will bring me up to 32 chickens, possibly 16 ducks, 2 geese , 16 quail, and 2 turkeys if all goes well. lol DH doesnt know yet.
