    Hi, I'm new to BackYard Chickens. We started raising 4 chicks just for fun - a one-month project that was supposed to end at the beginning of July. We were surprised to find that we really loved the chicks - each one has a different personality and they love snuggles and attention! So, we decided to keep them and are now in the process of getting a coop/run set up. Our girls (hopefully all girls!) are Clare (white), Cricket (black sex-link), Mocha (easter egger and might be a roo), and Acorn (RIR, I think). They were all hatched June 1.

    Welcome to BYC! It's great to have you.

    You can post any questionable birds in the "What Breed or Gender is This?" forum for help with sexing.

    All four of our chicks trying out Bok Choy. :)

    Cricket - such pretty feathers

    Clare - brave and sweet

    Acorn and Mocha - We wonder if Mocha is a rooster. She's been the boss from the start, has lots of red feathers, and is the most aggressive of the group.

    Oh, Mocha is DEFINITELY a cockerel. The rest are lovely pullets, though.
