    Hi everyone! My chickens are 6 weeks old, all white. They are a mix of leghorns and Plymouth Rock. Nellie is the smallest and she's kind of nosey, hence, nosey Nellie! I love my chickens!

    Welcome to BYC [​IMG] Glad you joined us! I also sometimes name my chickens, or maybe they name themselves? with their habits and behaviour. I've had some strange names in my flocks over the years...

    Hi and [​IMG] - glad that you have joined us and congrats on your chicks! I hope that you don't have to give "nellie" a male name soon! You can post pics of your chicks in the What Breed or Gender is This? if you are unsure as to their gender.

    You'll find lots of info in the Learning Centre
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center, and if you have a specific topic in mind, just type it in the search box - there's a wealth of information on past and present threads.

    You may wish to consider joining your state thread as it will put you in touch with other BYC members in your area - https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you
