Kitimat, BC -- first time chickens for me... With a SO who had chickens 10 years ago

26 ladies who will be 2 weeks old tomorrow (we think they're all pulleys.... Maybe a roo in the mix --- or a few!) all will be layers as far (as I am concerned) at this time!

I've been lurking and using BYC as a resource for the last month and figured it was time to make this official!

1 Red Rock Cross Cockerel
1 Columbian Rock Cockerel
8 Columbian Rock Pullets
8 Red Rock Cross Pullets
8 Red Sussex Pullets

Thank you! I ended up posting a Hello in the Canadian board as well--- thank you for tha!

We ordered a mixed batch of leftovers so we aren't certain what quantity of each of the 5 breeds--- they are all dual purpose. A mix of red rock, barred Plymouth Rock, Rhode Island Red, red Sussex, and Colombian Rock...

My guess right now:

1 x barred rock
8 x red rock cross
9 x Columbian rock
8 x orangey chicks so could be red Sussex or Rhode Island Red from what I understand....
