    I am new to BYC and chickens! I have 6 lovely Bright Star hens who started laying last month. My husband had to have a rooster so we aquired one this weekend and named him Cogburn. I know, not very original but we are both big John Wayne fans :) He is my Avatar. Does anyone know what type of rooster he might be? He is still young, born last fall so about 6 months old and the breeder just said he was mixed. Hmmmmm. Any help would be appreciated.
    Nice to meet all of you!

    Greetings from League City, Texas ChickenGma! I am new to raising chickens too, We just picked up 3 young chicks Friday afternoon. 2 grandsons live with us, and they are having a great time learning about chickens. I thought this would be a great way for us to teach them a little about where their food comes from. We are also starting a hay bale garden this weekend so we're going to be busy this spring.
