    mcarroll616 Chillin' With My Peeps

    I just got my first set of chicks on Saturday! Well we got 7 chicks and 6 Guineas. We are super excited and a bit nervous. I've been snooping around a lot on this site and have learned a lot. I need to post some pictures and see if anyone can tell me what breed they are. Our neighbor told us, but at the time I felt like he was talking a different language! I have learned so so much by reading on this site!

    We have the chicken coop almost done, just need to hang the chicken wire and build some nesting boxes. Ahhh I am so excited!

    I also can't wait to name them, I feel like I want to know the sex of the chickens before I give them names. I may need help with chicken names too. :)

    How old do the chicks have to be before I post and people can tell me hen or rooster? I reeeeeeally want to know. :) Even if it's just a guess.

    Hi && Welcome! [​IMG]Glad you joined!
    You can post any time really, but I recommend waiting til at least 4 weeks. At that time, you can usually get a good idea. Depending on the breed of course.
