    Hello all. I came across this group researching my new birds. I have had them for approximately 2 weeks now and what a bunch they are surprisingly interesting little creatures.

    Greetings from Kansas, hippiefeathers, and :welcome! Happy you joined our community. LOVE your part of the country....bet the colors are getting beautiful there now. The wife and I head down every year for "leaf peeping" as she calls it. As a chicken newbie you might spend some time reading in the Learning Center here https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center
    It will leave you well equipped to handle 99% of what might ever come up with your flock.
    Also, didn't know if you were from AR or MO or just where so if you'd like to chat with locals, find your state's thread here https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you
    Best wishes and enjoy your flock! :)

    Thank you everyone. I'll post some pics of my birds and their house as we build it. I have a couple I'm not sure what they are, hopefully you will all be able to help me determine
