    G'day, and welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. All of us here at BYC have OCD (Obsessive Chicken Disorder) and very few of us are immune to "chicken math." :eek:) X2 on OrganicFarmWife; if you haven't done so already, definitely check out our Learning Center. There is lots of useful information there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.

    Welcome To BYC! Please ask any questions you may have. If you post a picture someone here will be able to try and give an idea on breed and sex. For us to help you on sexing the chicks get a picture of their complete body of their side like this. If they are not fully feathered but have feathers on their wings try to get a picture of the wing stretched out like this. You'll have one wing type or the other,
