    Sunnys Chickens Out Of The Brooder

    Hi I am a long term reader, this is the first time posting as have had presents for the past two mornings from one of our pullets.

    We have a older hen we adopted in September last year who lays nearly every day, we decided to get some chicks in October which have grown up nice and healthy, turning out to be two roosters and two hens, we have returned one rooster and will return the other when he crows. In exchange we have two new 6 wk old chicks.

    So in total we have a rooster and 3 hens and the two new chicks.

    I'm sure we'll have many questions to ask

    The two new chicks, Im a bit worried about the brown chick being a rooster apparently she is a maran cross. The black chick is a austrolop cross.

    G'day and Welcome to the flock. BYC has a large Australian presence, always room for more. There is also a great thread "Australia, six states and one funny little island."

    Seems like everyone is having cockerels pop up in the wrong places.
