A few pics from the garden.

      Beautiful. Those Pekins are lovely! Looks like you've been having fairly typical summer weather!

      No idea if this will work, here goes Euskal Oiloa (Basque hen) crazily friendly!

      My three year old rooster Speckled Jim (named after Melchitts lovely speckly pigeon in Black Adder goes Forth!) Roos are lighter than the females too usually, not as gold, more grey. But all have a barring gene that looks almost cuckoo like a light crele

      Hi Skeffling, I really have no idea what Shelley is, I always presumed she is some sort of hybrid. Have you got any pictures of your un-pronoucables? It would be interesting to compare!

      Sorry Roosters, no lemon cuckoos here. Those are gorgeous!

      Closest in looks are my Marraduna Euskal Oiloas (don't ask me how to pronounce!) was wondering if Shelley was some of those. Such a pretty hen :-)

      Shelley is a hybrid of dubious genetic background. We can't quite puzzle her out ourselves!

      Do you really not have the lemon cuckoo strain in canada? There parents are my profile picture.

      Lovely chickens! What breed is Shelley? I love the Lemon Cuckoos! We don't even have that colour here in Canada. Your silkies are a beautiful colour too. You are lucky in England to have so much variety! Thanks for sharing them with us!

      Very enjoyable pictures. Thanks for the peek into your life!

      I was curious which breeds are represented...sometimes you have said, and sometimes not. Please consider adding that in under the pictures. Thanks.

      It would be cool if you added information about them, like their personalities and funny things they do!
