    Hi!I am so excited to be a new hobby farmer!I was given a handful or chickens... not sure what they all are, but I have got most identified! Now I have 8 Rhode Island Red hens plus a Roo, 5 New Hampshire Red hens, 5 Barred Rock hens and a Roo, then I let my daughter get 2 White Rock hens plus a Roo. I have also gotten into quail. I love the little guys! Just really enjoy my birds!

    Great that you are enjoying your birds so much that ,should be the main reason to have chickens(and guineas) the eggs are just a major bonus. Welcome to Backyard chickens. [​IMG]

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to our flock. Definitely post pics of those breeds you are not sure of on our What Breed or Gender is This? link that Mountain Peeps left with you, and take advantage of our experts there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your flock.
