    I'm sure my this gets asked a lot but I've newly acquired 2 five week old Legbars. I know you can't really tell at this age but I'm really worried I'm going to end up with a Rooster. I'm also worried about introducing them to my 3 Lohman Browns in case they get really bullied. Any tips?[​IMG]

    Welcome to BYC. To id your chicks - post photos at "what breed or gender is this."


    The best method(I believe) of integrating chicks to older flock is the "Look but don't touch method." If you put that in the search box, it should pop up.
