Hi everyone, We are new chicken keepers living in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates. We started off with 4 chicks from a farm and raised them in our spare room as the heat here in the summer can get to around 50 celsius, we were told 2 were french and 2 were kuwaiti chickens but that didn't really tell us what breeds they were. One we were told was a cochin (a little ball of fluff with feathery feet), another was grey/blue which we think could be mixed fayoumi and other 2 have grown to look alike even though one was yellow chick and the other brown chick and now both have grown they are brown with reddish long neck feathers possibly rhode island red or hampshire red (maybe one of each). We tried to sex our chicks from information on the internet and youtube videos and we thought we had 2 males and 2 females ~ boy, was we wrong, the ones we thought were females turned out to be males which made us change their names, the cochin was female and the other female turned out to also be a male. So we had 3 males and a poor cochin hen. We bought an extra 2 pullets (possibly buff orpingtons) from the animal market about 6 months old to add to our flock but we still need more hens. This is our flock for now, but would love to try hatch some chicks in the future. I keep threatening to get rid of 2 of the cocks as they all keep trying to mate the same girl. Thank you all for all your input on this site, its really helping and educating us in keeping our chickens.
