Got my peeps yesterday!

    Just moved from Wisconsin (city) to South Carolina (3 acres). A friend offered to hatch a dozen for me and we picked them up yesterday. However, he ended up with 26 and asked us to take them all. The coop I'm building is 4' x 8' with a run that's 8' x 12' so I have far too many chicks. If anyone would like a few, just let me know and come and get them. I have Ameraucanas, Naked Necks and Silver Laced Wyandottes. Unfortunately, they are not sexed and probably not pure breads. If anyone has any suggestions on how to trim my flock, please let me know.

    Thanks Peaceeagle1. This is the first time I've been able to reply to you. Before, it kept showing as loading. I've given away 6 of them (turns out they were 5 hens & 1 roo) but it looks like I have 8-10 hens left but waiting till 16 weeks to be sure.

    Once you know who's a pullet and who's a cockeral, you can pick out your favorites and either try to sell, give away or cook the rest. People are usually looking for hens, not roos. Craigs list is a great place to post.
