    Hey everyone [​IMG]
    Just located to Arkansas from Oklahoma.
    Bought some chicks from Atwoods almost 2 years ago and figured out I absolutely LOVE chickens! Since then I've purchased two incubators. Love one of them hate the other lol I've learned a LOT about raising chickens by reading online but still feel like I don't know much about them at the same time? I have a lot of questions and really hope I don't embarrass myself too much when I ask them LOL Just had some chicks hatch about a week ago and new batch started to hatch today! I have absolutely NO idea what breeds they are [​IMG] I hope you all can teach me how to tell what they are. Thanks for having me!!

    Welcome to Backyard chickens. The Learning Center is a great place to start a poultry education. When your chicks are 6-8 weeks old you can post photos at "what breed or gender is this?" and the good folks there will tell you. It's also a great thread to follow, to learn how the experienced folks sort them out- and will sharpen your eye.

    Sending good hatching vibes your way [​IMG]

    Chickens certainly are addicting and it sounds like you've been bit by the bug quite nicely. Good advice from drumstick diva (as usual).

    It's nice to have you here!
