    Hi all! I've been wanting chickens for years and finally took the plunge a couple weeks ago! I've been reading posts on this site for a while now and finally decided to stop lurking and join! I have 11 two week old chicks and they're awesome! They are all various bantams and supposedly females. They are so fun and give me so much joy!

    Bantams are adorable. When they are about 6 weeks old, you can post photos of them at "what breed or gender is this," and get several opinions. [​IMG]
