    Decided to join because I just started my first flock and anytime I googled anything regarding chickens, the answer was always found on this forum. I built a coop and currently have 6 chickens. Four of them are still too young to go outside in the coop but I have 2 that are 8 weeks old and they stay outside. Here is what I have. 2 Black Australorps, 2 Silver Laced Wyandottes, 1 Americauna and 1 Easter egger. Fingers crossed that they are all hens but Im not sure. Glad to be here and look forward to learning more about these awesome birds

    When chicks are 6-8 weeks old, you can post good photos of them at "what breed or gender is this." The folks there are very good at what they do.
