    Ok, I'm feeling a little silly about this - but I could use your help in identifying my chicks.
    I know which breeds I bought but I don't know which is which! This is my first batch of chicks, I'm so excited! These girls are for eggs only - pets, not dinner :) Lucy, Ethel, Laverne, Shirley, Miss Templeton Peck and Eggroll.

    it might help if you tell us what breeds you got (unless you are trying to keep it a secret and test the skills of BYC!), and we can put your chicks into the breed slots
