newbie to NYC and to keeping chickens

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hey now fellow BYC keepers. Currently I have a total of 7 chickens. This group is comprised of 2 leghorn,  2 game fowl, and a brown chicken who's built like the leghorn  (idk what she is.....)  my newest additions are 2 bareneck silky showgirls who are almost 4 months old now.  I could use some help sexing them as I am still learning about them. I believe I've got a hen and a roo..... I'll post pix of my babies... 

 

About me: I live in Warner Springs, CA. I'm a city girl thru and thru, but losing thst quickly. I love this high desert country! I'm sitting on 7.5 acres of rented property. God greets me with a new painting every morning...  my chickens are also very welcoming, they know who feeds them! 

 

Any words of advice and I'm all ears!!!! 

 

Thank you for including me in your very special community!

 

For now, farewell, 

Jenna

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

The girl looks like bowtie showgirl . I am only seeing a bit of naked skin on the back of the male's neck.  The front looks totally  feathered in to me.  Maybe it is just a bad angle.

 

You know  showgirl  hatches can have both showgirls and regular silkies in it..
