Hi I'm Anna

I have a little bit of crazy in my back garden, I breed standard quail and painted quail but have pet chickens too...currently my three female batams and six babies including 1 sebright (always wanted one and couldn't find any so brought fertile eggs, sadly only one hatched) I brought 5 day olds to keep it company and now have the task of sexing the lot...I have plenty of space so females will be staying but sadly we are too built up to have cockerels so they will have to be rehomed

I really enjoy my chickens, quite different from my quail which I know loads about, sadly I know very little about chickens yet lol

I also have 5 chihuahuas who love the birds and are very good around them smile.png

Welcome to BYC, Anna. Glad you decided to join our flock. Be careful with your chihuahuas around your chickens. Dogs and chickens do not typically mix well. We frequently get posts from new members whose seemingly benign dogs suddenly and unexpectedly decided to chase and kill their chickens, and not infrequently the culprits are small breeds including chihuahuas. Dogs just naturally seem to view chickens either as prey or else as chew toys. If you haven't done so already, definitely check out our Learning Center at http://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center. There is lots of useful information there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.

Welcome to Backyard chickens.  When your chicks are  6 weeks old  or more,  you can post individual photos of them  at  "what breed or gender is this." and hopefully get your answers  - roo or pullet.
