Hello everyone, Clucking Karen here and I'm excited to have joined your flock. My chicken coop is under construction and should be ready in a couple of weeks. Today we went out with the kids armed with our notes on what type of chicken would best suit our new coop and our family. Unfortunately that's not how things went down. The only place in our "City" that sold baby chicks was a Hardware shop. All the chicks were mixed up. I asked for docile, not broody, and good egg layers. They sort of pointed to a few in a cage of about 50 baby chicks. For them the chicks were for "eating" not pets. Oh well, they were all adorable. So I took 7. I'll care for them just the same. How do I identify what kind of chickens I have? And at what age can you tell?
