    Hello everyone! My husband and I got our first few little chicks in July, and we LOVE them! I did so much research before we got them; yet, I'm still always looking up information and learning new things. I found myself exploring this website many times, so I figured I better join since I plan on having chickens as long as I am able to. [​IMG]

    I am very sad though... we got two Easter Egger's that were straight run, and I think they are both roos... but we are still holding out hope for hens so that we can keep them. [​IMG]

    Look forward to more exploring and learning!

    -Kerry

    [​IMG] Glad you are enjoying your birds [​IMG]. If you post pictures of your EE's we can probably sex them for you.

    Hello and welcome to BYC [​IMG] I'm not expert, but they look like pullets to me. I may be wrong though! Try posting in the What Breed Or Gender is This? section.
