I am new to Chickens. My husband used to have chickens but I worked full time away from home at the time and didn't have anything to do with them other than eat the eggs This time the chickens are mine. I can't tell you what possessed me but a few weeks ago, I decided that we should have chickens and once I made that decision, the next one was that they should be 'breed' chickens. 2 weeks ago I bought 5 Australopes and 4 Welsummer chicks all just under 2 weeks old. While the chicks are growing in the dog whelping box, we are converting the dog run and kennel into a chicken palace. The dogs are happy with that arrangement as they've not been in that run for years - they live inside At the moment I am trying to guess what sex chicks I've got. (they are nearly 4 weeks old now) The ten million dollar question I guess I think that I may have one Welsummer rooster and 3 chicks but the Australorps are all the same so either all Roosters or all Hens ??? Is there anyone else who has Welsummer Chickens?
