Golden Laced Wyandotte chooky chickens

    I've been harboring a desire for some Golden Laced Wyandotte chooky chickens (yes, that is a technical term) for quite some time now but have never been able to find any handy enough to home.
    The idea has been simmering along for a while but had been put on the back burner of ideas.
    The other day though after clenaing up around their run it came to me to have another search and see if I could find any. 
    My first and only port of call is always the Farmstock (great website too) web site and as if it was meant to be there in the first half a dozen listings was an add for some Golden Laced Wyandotte chickens.
    A quick phone call and the deal was done for four Golden Laced Wyandotte chickens. A second phone call to a good friend to drive me down to pick them up and there you be, all done. 
   

 They were seven and eight weeks old a week ago tomorrow (2/10/12) and in the USA that's (10/2/12)
 

    Here's a brief description from Wikipedia :- The Wyandotte is a breed of chicken originating in the United States. The first examples of the breed appeared in 1870s. Wyandottes are a docile, dual-purpose breed kept for their brown eggs and for meat. They appear in a wide variety of color patterns, and are popular show birds. The Wyandotte lays pale brown or tan eggs and usually has a white ring of feathers around its neck. Wyandotte hens are devoted mothers.

The Wyandotte is a breed that suits both free range and confinement in a run. Hens occasionally become broody. They are also very vocal, uttering soft clucks on a regular basis.
The breed has been noted for being incredibly friendly, and combined with their easy maintainability are a favorite with those new to raising chickens.

Hello! Do you know if they make any plugins

Any suggestions?
