    Welcome to Backyard chickens. Have you visited our great Learning Center? It's the best place for finding answers to your questions. I also recommend "Raising Backyard chickens" forum, and your state thread - just put the name in the search box and it will come up. You may find you have some bycer neighbors to help you along.

    ps What breeds do you have? Once they are about 6-8 weeks old you can post photos at "what breed or gender is this," so you will know if you truly have girls or not.
