    Hi, I am new to chickens and to BYC and wanted to introduce myself. I am really enjoying this site and my new hobby. I started with a few chicks in November and added a few more in December so I have a total of 7. I told my husband I wanted only 3-4, but I loved them immediately and wanted more as did my 3 young girls who are just as fascinated as I am about them. I have 2 "sexed" Amauracana chicks/pullets - the newest ones that are turning 4 weeks old, 3 Amauracanas that I was told were "straight run" that are almost 2 months old, a Dominique about 2 months old and a RIR that is 6 weeks old...I think, from what I am learning, one from the straight run Amauracanas may be a rooster (Fowl Mom in Largo said she'd take back if I ended up with any that I didn't plan on keeping). It's fun figuring out all this stuff. I am really getting into learning about their feathers, colors, well you know, all that chicken stuff. Thanks so much.

    [​IMG] Sounds like you are starting out like most of us on BYC did... Start with a few, add a few, then decided you'd like to hatch a few....Next thing you know, you turn around [​IMG] Oh my, I have how many chickens??? I have so many now, I refuse to count.. I know how many, I just refuse to admit it.. [​IMG]

    On a side note, if your Ameraucanas came from a hatchery (or feed store, etc) they are Easter Eggers and not true Ameraucanas, not that it matters though...they come in gorgeous colors and I love my EEs!!
