    Hey all. New here. New to chickens. Im about 4 weeks into keeping chicks. I bought 3 orpingtons and 4 barred rocks. And a friend of mine needed a home for a rooster so he lives with me. No idea what he is but hes a few weeks older than the ladys.

  2. HI and welcome to BYC :)! Orpingtons and Barred rocks are great choices, I love mine. You can always post a picture of your roo. Theirs lots of people who could help you figure out his breed.

    Greetings from Kansas, sackosuds, and :welcome. Great to have you with us. A great place for the new chicken keeper is the Learning Center here https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center
    Also, if you are still uncertain of the type of rooster you have, post a pic of him here https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/15/what-breed-or-gender-is-this
    Okay, I have to ask...sackosuds? One of my all time favorite movies is My Cousin Vinny where a store called the Sack o' Suds is featured. Funny movie! :gig Is that where you came up with your username?
