    Hi, I'm a new chicken mom and am currently raising 16 little feather butts all are 3 weeks old today! I have to say I think this is going to be a new addiction for me.
    I do have a few questions if someone could help me out...
    First, I got a mystery chick with my order can anyone tell me what breed he or she might be?
    Also I think one of my white leghorn ladys is actually a gent is it to soon to tell?[​IMG][/IMG]

    You definitely got little roo, lol!
    Chicks are a good way to start when you first get poultry.

    Thanks! I ordered all female but I'm so excited to have a roo in the mix. With a comb like that in only 3 weeks he's going to grow to be one handsome bird!

    I can't tell about the brown one but the Leghorn does look like a male, that's a good size comb for a 3-week old.

    Glad you're enjoying your new little flock!

    G’Day from down under tifposey [​IMG] Welcome!

    Cute little ones! As you have already received some great advice and links, I will just wish you all the best.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
