Welcome. Lots of information here. I found this forum immensely helpful prior to setting up and obviously since our girls arrived nearly two years ago.
Penny and Freckles - the WArren Girls'
Star and Flopsy (the latter of the floppy comb) both members of the White Star Faction.
Fedora and Florence the Cream Legbars
Emily (see Emily lay) and Erica the Light Sussex babes
1 current husband aka the structural engineer
1 large organic allotment
The Lady Isabella Pickford-Fiennes, a feline of distinction and excellent mouser

Since the Wyandotte is obviously tame, deal with her grotty bum under a running outside tap. Also worm her if you haven't already done so - a long shot, but worth trying.
Astralorps are wonderful birds - less fluffy and far better layers than orpingtons, but easily as friendly.
Guinea fowl & a lot of surplus poultry equipment.

Sometimes it can help if you trim some "frilly knickers" away - same with Orpingtons in particular I find. :roll:
