    Hi ya'll! Just started my chicken journey and these 5 have made me a chickie mom. [​IMG]

    1. Rose, an EE pullet. I was crossing my fingers for a pale chick, and she is perfect!

    2. Ethel, our Barred Rock pullet.

    3. Lucy, our Buff Orpington pullet.

    4. Lacey, our Silver Laced Wyandotte pullet.

    5. Goldie, (my impulse buy- avoid the bantam bin at all costs!!!!) she is most likely a Gold Laced Cochin Bantam, and we are calling her a 'she' but time will tell. Mystery chick.

    Anyways, I am very excited to start this new chapter of having chickens. I have 2 more chickies coming in May, once these are moved outside to the coop... a Black Australorp chick and then a Light Brahma chick... and if I can avoid the bantam bin, that will be all for now. [​IMG]

    Thanks CT!

    I will check that out. I have stalked BYC for the last few months off and on to help educate myself. I am such a learner, so I always appreciate information! Thank you!

    Your bantam may need a buddy when he /she is confronted by bigger breeds

    We are considering that. So far she has no problem holding her own. She piles on top of the others and pushes her way under them. But we are leaning towards getting some more bantams.
