    All I keep are black australorps. So I can not help you. BUT....there will be others along shortly that will no doubt be able to ID them for you. [​IMG]

    Great to have you aboard and enjoy BYC!

    I am new to raising chickens. Our first chicken is a feral chicken we were given off of Farm Street in Bastrop, where the chickens roam free. Our next 2 we purchased. Our third was another feral chicken. Our next 6 we purchased. Then the owner's rooster, got to our first feral chicken, Miss Kay, and she just had 10 babies. I have grown very fond of our chickens and spend a lot of time with them. I am excited about being a part of BYC and look forward to many conversations and learning.

    Hi Kelsie2290! Thank you for the welcome and helping me out with figuring out what my babies are. Someone in Bastrop had mentioned that the 2nd hen (Miss Kay) could be a Sex-link hen? I NEVER knew how many chicken breeds there are! WOWZA! The 6 we bought the second time around are Rhode Island Reds.........that much I know for sure. My husband came home with (Jessica) the first picture shown and a sibling (Missy) that I think is also a Rhode Island Red. There is so much to learn and I am a beginner, so I am looking forward to exploring BYC and trying to learn as much as possible. I have started a notebook to keep all my information in. Hope you have a wonderful day and thank you again for responding!

    http://feathersite.com/Poultry/BRKPoultryPage.html#Chickens don't know if you have seen Feathersite ... talk about a lot of chicken (and other poultry) breeds ... Miss Kay doesn't look like what we usually see around here as a sex link, but somebody could be using odd breeds, you might try posting her on the What Breed Or Gender Is This forum where more people would see the pictures.
