    Hello everyone!
    My wife and I are new chicken owners. I prefer to call the group of 25 chickens "the peepers," We ordered all females... But it's looking like there may be a few roosters. I'm not that test at id'ing them yet.
    The group is 2 months old.

    There is so much excellent information on this site I felt compelled to join the group.
    I'm a member on several other forums, but this one seems to be the friendliest forum I have joined so far.

    The wife and I own saltwater fish, 2 dogs, chickens, a horse, and 2 parrots.
    I look forward to reading through the forums and helping when I can.

    Thanks for having me!

    Dave

    Howdy fellow Texan! Hope you find all the answers to your poultry questions here ;) If you post pictures of some of the chicks you think may be males, I can try to guess at sexing them.
    I'll see you around the forums!
