    Hello everyone I'm new to BYC just starting out raising some chickens. I went to Rural King and picked up 4 chicks. I went with 2 Asian Blue & 2 Barred Rock. I can't find much info on the Asian Blues does anyone have them and how are they for backyard raising. The 2 I have are very docile you can pick them up and they fall asleep in your hands. The 2 Barred Rocks are not so happy being picked up but we're working on all 4 of them. This is a picture of our runt

    Hello and welcome to BYC - great that you have joined us and congrats on your new littles! I'm not an expert on breeds, but if you cannot find out much about them as a breed, then maybe they are a cross, that has been given that moniker by a particular hatchery [​IMG]

    Maybe these links may be helpful:

    You'll find lots of info in the Learning Centre - https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center and if you have a specific topic in mind, just type it in the search box - there's a wealth of information on past and present threads.

    You may wish to consider joining your state thread as it will put you in touch with other BYC members in your area - https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/270925/find-your-states-thread#post_3239224

    G’Day from down under articwlf1967 [​IMG] Welcome & Congratulations!

    Sorry, I have not heard of Asian Blues until now but that could just be because I am in Australia and like Ken not an expert on breeds.

    As you have already received links to some good starting points, I will just wish you all the best.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share more pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]

    I'm not familiar with Asian Blues, but, I have seen them mentioned on BYC often. Your chick is a little doll. I'm the shortest one in my family, so guess I'm the runt. Better small than not at all .
