    I've been reading this forum for months & decided to join. I have 8 chickens in my backyard. 3 are inherited from my in-laws due to them moving and 5 are chicks we are growing. The grown hens are a RIR, a ophington & a Ameraucana.

    Our chicks are: Black Sex Link (about 9 weeks), Blue andalusian (8 weeks), 2 Ameraucanas (8-9 weeks) and 1 RIR (9 weeks).

    We fear 1 is a Roo as we started to hear a broken crow 2 mornings ago.

    Here's to our Chicken Adventure 2016 :)

    Hi and [​IMG] - great to have you onboard with us. You can post pics of your chickens once they are 6 weeks old on the What Breed or Gender is This? forum.

    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

    All the best

    Thanks everyone! Such great info here. I've read so much on here for weeks, so finally joined. I just posted in the what gender area with some pictures hoping to get some experts help. I'll also join the state thread!

    Thank you everyone!
