Hello from Ontario, Canada

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello all, after a few years of contemplating we decided to take the plunge and built a coop in our backyard. While we were excited about the idea of farm fresh eggs I never realized how much I would enjoy the chickens themselves. They have amazing unique personalities!

We have 4 41/2 week old Easter eggers and one 4 1/2 week old jersey giant that we have had since they were a week old.

Anxiously waiting to see what sex they will turn out to be but from the endless reading I have done on this site I am fearful that at least 3 of the 5 are Roos and one of the two remaining has a scissor beak that is quite bad.

Thank you for all the amazing posts and information all of you make available on this site. Looking forward to this journey!

Glad you could join us here! Congrats on getting your new chicken adventures started clap.gif
Here's hoping they are not all Roos! You could post some pics in the what breed gender section ~ http://www.backyardchickens.com/f/15/what-breed-or-gender-is-this
I'm sure members there will be able to help you out.

For info on scissor beak ~ http://www.backyardchickens.com/newsearch?search=Scissor+beak#

Good luck and enjoy BYC frow.gif

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

If you haven't noticed yet, I am the king of typos.

When I post in the "What Breed Or Gender Is This" section, I do not name hatchery/peoples' hybrids by a "breed" name (for example, Oliver Egger)--they are either a purebred or a mixed breed.

Look at my flock page! http://www.backyardchickens.com/a/bant...
