    Hi guys. Been browsing this site for a while now while I drooled over everyone's chickens and their coops. I had been wanting chickens for years and decided now was as good a time as any. I recently purchased 3 RIR, 3 Delaware and 3 Blue Andalusians ( I think I spelled that right ). Waiting to see if they are hens or roosters and have them housed in a temporary pen that my nephew loaned me. I am building a coop and when it's complete I'll post all the pics and specs. Enjoying the site, keep up the great reads and info!!

    If you're wondering what sex your chickens are, I'd post some photos of them, either on this thread or in the What Breed or Gender is This? section of the forums. I, and many others, would be glad to help you identify them!
