    Greetings from ND. My husband and I recently purchased 6 chickens and 2 ducks. We are currently working on building a good coop for them all. My chickens were referred to as a "barnyard mix". I have one black and white (looks like what we have always referred to as an x-checker) one pure black and the others I can't really describe well. I would like to post pics of them once I can to get some help identifying them. I would also like to figure out how to tell the sex on my chickens (11 wks) (i think there are 5 hens and 1 roo)
    My ducks are only about 2 wks old but I would like to figure out the sex of them as well.

    I look forward to all the insight I can gain through this site! Thanks and happy chickening everyone! :)

    I would also try the "duck" forum for your ducks.
