    Been reading here since February when I got my Reds from tractor supply. Lots of good info and a nice friendly forum!! We started with 6 chicks and lost one a couple of days in. The rest are doing well. Just started to get eggs at about 18 weeks. First one on fathers day, and after a break, and a few long discussions with the birds, one has agreed to give an egg a day for the last 5 days. Hopefully 6 today. Im still not sure what I have. Any thoughts?

    Please post your photos at "what breed or gender is this." I think they are Rhode island reds but looks like some males in the flock.
