    Hello! So many helpful hints on here!! Last summer I got my first 4 chickens--cream legbars. They are absolutely a joy!! I just added 5 more chickens to my little homestead (well, they are still separate for the time being) --I got them from a farm around the corner from me and I have no idea what they are--I thought perhaps someone would? I think there are 2 Jersey giants and 3 barred rocks? No idea if they are pullets or cockerels..anyone know how to tell?

    You can post photos at "what breed or gender is this." It is best that the chicks be 6-8 weeks old. Welcome to Backyard chickens

    G’Day from down under dixiechick83 [​IMG] Welcome!

    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]
