    Since I'm new here, I guess I'll tell you a little about me.
    I'm a young girl raising 12 chickens in all. (11 pullets, 1 cockerel.) And I will ask many questions about them in the forum.
    I'm starting a mealworm farm currently, thank God! No more having to spend money every week for the little worms, so any help/tips on that would help immensely.
    Also, I currently have 2 dogs, 70+ fish. (At least 30 are koi), a caged bird, and frogs.
    I love animals like crazy, my animals mean the world to me, so I'd love to hear any stories about yours.
    Sadly, I must keep my cockerel away from my girls once he gets old enough to reproduce. No baby chicks for me. ):
    I will try to keep updates on how all the animals in my family's doing.
    These are the breeds of my animals:

    Chickens:
    6 Black and White Brahmas.
    3 Tetra Tints.
    3 Rhode Island Reds.

    Dogs:
    1 Chiuaua/Dachshund mix.
    1 Pure-bred Toy Fox Terrior.

    Fish:
    40+ Goldfish.
    30+ Butterfly/Regular Koi.

    Caged Bird:
    1 Gray Cockatiel.

    Frogs:
    3 Bullfrogs.
    2 Leopard Frogs.
    5 Tadpoles!

    Hi and [​IMG] This is a great place to find answers to your questions. It sounds like you have a great start with your chicks. As for the rooster, if you leave him in with your hens, you will get fertilized eggs, but you won't get baby chicks unless you let a hen sit on them to hatch. [​IMG]
