Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us! :)

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

Please check out the Learning Center.  You may also like to join your state thread - just put  that in the search box and it will come up.  Then you could ask what breeds do best in your area, what type of coop,  where the best feed stores, etc. are.  BYCERS  tend to be very kind and thoughtful people.

Hello all! First and foremost this site helped me through my first year of being a hen mother. Jeez through stinky butt with the chicks to applying Vaseline to prevent frostbite has been ever so helpful. Just want to say thanks!

I purchased this year a barred rock chick that I'm almost sure is a roo.😧 It has made strange noises in the morning two to three days in a row then nothing. Its 12 - 13 weeks old and is twice the size of the sexlink I got at the same time. What should I look for other than the spear like feathers? Sure is a beauty but can't have roosters where I live.

Hi and welcome to our community- glad that you have joined us.

 

The Coop Section and the "Coops and Runs" forums should help you with your coop build. You'll find lots of info in the Learning Centre 

http://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center, and if you have a specific topic in mind, just type it in the search box - there's a wealth of information on past and present threads. 
 

Best wishes

I'd suggest posting pics of your suspect cockerel in the What Breed or Gender is This? forum.

 

Fingers crossed its a girl!
