    Went to the feed store for some chicks. My lovely 8yo fell in love with a little white frizzle, which I believe is a bantam Cochin sold as a pullet. I've been noticing the early reddening of his comb here he is at 5 weeks. What do you think? He or She?

    Can someone please help me. I bought 3 black sexlinks and 3 gold sexlinks from Atwoods. They are all supposed to be girls. But after reading I am worried that this might be a bit that slip in there. They all have wing bands on them for sexing I assume. This is the first time that I have had chickens. Also what do I do with the wing bands? Do I leave them on or take them off and if so. How.

    Hello [​IMG]and Welcome to BYC![​IMG]
    Glad to have you join! Feel free to make yourself at home! What wing band? (I can't see it in the picture) But I think it would be best to take it off.

    I've never seen a wing band. I wish I had an answer for you.
