Hi. I've had chickens for about a year now. I have eight, hence the name. 2 ameraucanas, blue laced Wyandotte, silver Wyandotte, buff Orpington/ blue Wyandotte mix, RIR, 2 bantams OEG? I need some help identifying the breed/gender of the bantams. They are three months old. Will post pics soon. I also have a beautiful chicken friendly long haired dachshund mix, Ari. And a black cat. And a veggie garden. Haha! My best friend got me into chickens as he had had some before we met. I convinced him we should get some and the rest is history. I learned about the forum through Internet researching. I love posts with pictures and following the threads that chronicle bird development or talk about breeds. In the future I would like to maybe try raising meat birds. Either from my own stock, heirloom, or from a breeder, such as the freedom rangers. Thanks!!
