    Hello All! My name is Stacey and I'm so excited to be a member of this group! I am a newbie chicken keeper. My 3 babies are currently in my bathroom waiting for feathers to be able to venture to their coop! So excited for this adventure as I'm already in love with my girls!

    I wish I knew what breed my girls are. I teach first grade and we have a chick unit each year for science. I have 4 beautiful girls that we got to watch hatch but have no idea what kind they are. One is all white, one is yellow and black, one is black and white speckled, and one is black but we are seeing hints of brown coming through. They are almost 4 weeks old so their feathers are really coming in. Any ideas on breed potentials?

    They are almost 4 weeks old now and in their awkward adolescent stage of down and feather mix.

    Hello [​IMG] and Welcome to BYC!
    Please make yourself at home! If you post in the "What breed or Gender?" Forum I'm sure someone will be able to help!
