    Hello, totally new to chickens, just got myself 5 today at the feed store. Been wanting to have them forever and I finally gave in. Brand new chicks :D
    1 Barred Rock- poor thing is already getting picked on.
    2 Rhode Island Red
    2 Ameraucana- Didn't realize there was different kinds.... Not sure which one.

    Cute chicks! If you have one already being picked on, keep an eye on her as the others may be keeping her from the food and water.

    G’Day from down under kandi862 [​IMG] Welcome!

    As you have already received some great advice and links, I will just wish you and your adorable little ones all the best.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
