    Hi I'm a new at the whole having chickens. think I'm off to a good start though. I bought 8 chickens from tractor supply a month ago and finally moved them outside! Yay my bedroom is trashed now . they were labeled as salmon favorelles but i m starting to think they are not. They started out yellow and now they are all solid white with four toes, no muffs or anything . they do have a slight webbing in-between their toes though . any suggestions ? I can post pictures also

    If you could post photos, that would be helpful. There's a forum called What Breed or Gender Is This...perfect place to find out what you have.

    Thanks for joining us!

    When they are about 6-8 weeks old is really the best time to post at "what breed or gender is this."

    Some people have posted photos a day or two after hatch and expected to learn the gender etc. The people manning that thread are not clairvoyant - just experienced chickeners.
