    Hi! I'm new to this chicken thing and have used BYC several times while trying to get through this first couple months; so I figured I'd join. My little flock includes 2 BO's, 2 BA's and 2 EE's; all between 6 and 7 weeks old. I'm hoping they're all hens, but I'm starting to have some suspicions that there's a roo or 2 in the bunch. Guess time will tell.

    Hi :welcome Glad you joined the flock. Be sure to ask lots of questions everyone very friendly and informative. I'm sure if you post some pics in the breed gender section someone will be able to help. Here is the link for it. https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/15/what-breed-or-gender-is-this. Good luck in the future with your chickens :frow

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. I currently have all three of those breeds (plus some Black Sex Link hens), and love them all. The Black Australorps are my favorite standard breed; extremely hardy, calm and gentle (my granddaughter has made lap pets of ours and our BOs), and excellent layers of large brown eggs. Our EEs are my granddaughter's favorites though. She loves their colored eggs. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your flock.
