    Hi there, we are new to chicken keeping and to BYC. My sons school recently took part in an egg to chick project. All class members were allowed the opportunity of rehoming if their parents could offer a suitable setup. My son has always wanted to have chickens since he was 4 therefore I agreed and we adopted two of the chicks. We had hoped they were both pullets but school did say whilst they were sex linked breeds they couldn't be sure on one of the chicks. We have been watching and waiting with interest and we are both getting very fond of them both
