Hi everyone, I am brand new to chicken owning and know almost nothing. I purchased my first 6 chicks about three weeks ago. They are roughly 5-6 weeks old now. I am almost positive that I have at least two Roos in the bunch, and am not sure the sex of the remaining four, so I'll be posting pictures when they get a bit older to try and figure that out. I am very excited to be a chicken owner, and am looking forward to the adventures to come!

:welcome  and congrats on getting your own flock.

 

At 5-6 weeks the experienced folks may be able to help you with the roos vs pullets dilemma - go ahead and get pics and post under what breed/gender forum to see if anyone can ID them.

 

But, in case you drew unwanted roos, do start planning on rehoming - just in case.

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
