First time having my own chickens

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
This is my first time having my own chickens I got them from someone off the party line witch is a Radio station where I live the guy I got them from said they were road island reds but I believe there mixed with something else because I built my own incubator a have hatched out 11 baby chicks out of 23 and I have some that came out solid black with legs the size of a pencil at two weeks old some yellow with off brown and one that looks like a quail

Rickie welcome to BYC!                   

There is a What Breed Or Gender is This? forum on the site you might try your question there.

Good luck!

Hi Rickie and welcome to our forum. Theres lots of info in the learning centre - but I'm guessing since you have already build your tractor, you know that already :) You may find your state thread useful in putting you in contact with other BYC members nearby also. Congrats on the incubator build and your new chicks - i wish i could do DIY, but alas, I'm all fingers and thumbs!

 

All the best

When you chicks are 6- 8 weeks old you can post photos of them (individual are best) at  "what breed or gender is this."

Yes, you are correct. The pointed end should go down, the big end up.
