    Hi! I just joined this site and got 10 chicks about 2 months ago for egg laying and entertainment. I also have 1 husband, 2 kids, 4 dogs, and just recently my guppies had about 30 fry! The best part about them is that I love watching them gobble up stink bugs... I'm not sure yet how many are roosters. I got them from a small local farm, where the owner told me that she thought that they were easter eggers, barred rocks and ??? I'm not sure what they all are and am hoping that if I post some pics, that some of you can help me identify them. I think that 3 (maybe 4) are barred rocks, 3 are yellowish colored easter eggers, and there's 3 that I'm not sure -- a mostly pure black one, a gray one with some specks that kind of reminds me of a pigeon, and a black one with golden/lacy looking coloring around his/her neck... I'm looking forward to learning more! [​IMG]

    Wow sounds like you've got a house full. We use to have guppies, mollies, and platies and loved watching them give birth to their fry and loved having a tank - better than television. Anyway, welcome to the BYC forum. You'll learn tons here and we all love photos. The easiest way is to paste the page source of the photo directly from facebook. But, anyway, we look forward to helping you identify your chickens. Angela (dsquawker)
