    Did the ole incubate some eggs and got some chicks and decided to keep some!!

    Gave 12 chicks to the School I worked in where i set up a massive chicken "farm" where they provide eggs for the kitchen.

    So I have 4 baby chickens.
    1 bantam i dont know what type
    1 silver laced wyandotte
    1 gold laced wyandotte
    1 barnevelder

    I think the first 3 are hens, but i dont know about the barny. ive put a pctre of him in the what gender part of the forum...

    I dont know much about keeping them. theyre in a coop in my garden adn free range during the day.

    Im going on a chicken handling course in a few weeks which im quite excited about!!

    Basically I feed them and clean them out, let them in the garden in the morning and spend an age chasing them back into their coop with a bowl of food later in the day!!!

    Im a proper novice!!
