    Hi from Central Florida. I have shared wanted chickens and started living the dream when my fiance gave me a coop for Christmas. (Yes, really)
    We got 4 chicks late last April and the Ladies are now about 3-4 month's old.
    I used this site a lot to help with set up, breed selection, and knowing when I can move them outside, etc.
    We have 3 cochin hens and one Lavender Orpington hen. Here's a pic of the Cochins [​IMG] we now suspect one might be a rooster....
    I thought I would join to share the story of the little urban flock. Cheers! [​IMG]

    Hi - nice to meet you. Your birds are lovely. You can post their photos at "what breed or gender is this." and they will sort them out for you.

    Welcome to BYC [​IMG] That is a wonderful Christmas present! You have a beautiful little flock there, fingers crossed that suspect "he" turns out to be a "she", if that's what you need. You can post pics in the What Breed Or Gender is This? section for opinions.
