If you are a beginner, I would recommend avoiding the rescue chickens and getting some healthy hybrids from a breeder. Rescue chickens can be rewarding, but do take extra care and attention and have their own problems. However, don't let me put you off, any chickens are better than none! They are normally very little trouble, I take food and water to mine in the mornings and shut them up at night. They have the run of a small paddock, I don't let them near the cultivated part of the garden. My neighbour is happy to look after them when I go away in return for the eggs!

Flowering currant? Is it herbaceous, or a shrub?

Are you sure it's cypress spurge? The usual one to find in a wood would be Wood Spurge, Euphorbia amygdaloides. Cypress spurge is not a British wild plant, just a fairly rare garden escape. Wood spurge is also a bit invasive, but quite easy to pull out.

So what plant / weed is this?

Winter heliotrope flowers in January so you've missed them for this year. It is very invasive.

The image is not wood sorrel, it's Oxalis corniculata or Creeping yellow-sorrel. Wood sorrel has beautiful drooping white bells.

How about Ligularia dentata for the first one? Fairly sure it's not Caltha palustris.
