I'm a somewhat newbie starting my mixed flock last year. I have used this site and forums for many of my questions along the way and just decided to join today. I have 3 one year old chickens, 1 barred rock, 1 Rhode Island red and 1 large white chicken that was out of a mixed layer bunch that I'm not sure what she is, lol! I have 5 new chickens this year that are 13 weeks old, 1 buff orpington, 1 black star, 1 Easter egger (questioning it's gender) and 2 salmon faverolles. I had an Easter egger that was with my original 3 one year olds that ended up being a rooster and he became extremely aggressive over the last few months and I found him a new home a few weeks ago. He was a beautiful rooster and I miss his morning wake up calls and his presence, even though he was after me at all times! I have posted on a sexing Easter Eggers thread asking about my 13 week old. Please take a look and I welcome all responses and advice. Thank you!
