    Hello everyone! I’m so excited to finally fulfill my dream of owning my own small flock! My girls (hopefully) are about 8 weeks old.

    I’ve got a lavender Orpington, Silver laced Wyandotte, Australorp, and sapphire gem! Hoping they’re all pullets!

    Welcome to BYC! Always room for a new friend on the roost around here. If you get a chance, you can post photosof you'r chicks, at 8 weeks we can likely give you a pretty good idea of genders.
