    My hubby and I are new to raising chickens and have lots of questions. I've relied on this site during my research and wanted to stop lurking and actually contribute! I will say THANK YOU for all previous posts that helped me in the past and to all future posts that I know I'll rely on again!

    Thanks for the warm welcome!!

    We've got 6 Red Ladies from TSC that we raised from chicks (Rhode Island Reds and New Hampshires). They are now 22 weeks old and have been laying eggs about a month.

    We also adopted 2 from a coworker's son who hatched them in an incubator. "Hatch-daddy" named the chicks Sam Whitchickie and MegaCluck (he's a Transformers movie fan). They are 8 weeks old and we have no clue if they are Roos or hens yet. Any thoughts on breed and/or gender? [​IMG]

    Lovely birds!
    Try posting in the "What breed or gender is this?" section. Your post will get more answers there. :)

    Those are cute names. My granddaughter names our hens after Disney princesses. It looks to me like they are probably an Easter Egger pullet (left) and a Black Australorp pullet, but it would help to have a full body profile. If the bird on the left has greenish legs, it's definitely an Easter Egger.
