Hello! I have been using this site as a reference for my chicken for the past year or so. Our friends gave us their chickens, in October will be 2 years ago. We have a Barred Rock Rooster, Rhode Island Red, Black Ostralorpe, and a Buff Orpington (we believe). Our ostralorpe is a broody gal and hourdes all the eggs. Last year she hatched 2 eggs. Barred-a-lorpe as I like to call them. One survived and is definitely a rooster. This year she hatched 10! Unfortunately we are down to 7, not bad for unexpected chicks. We are not sure of their sexes...I have an idea (but that is a different thread). Anyway, I just wanted to say hello before bombarding with pictures and questions. Thanks for being here!
