    Hi,
    Starting my new flock. I had free range chickens with a business partner out at her farm. [​IMG] Unfortunately we have coyotes. I have started a new one (smaller ) in my backpack. This year our feed store had some unusual breeds, so I liked the names and got them. [​IMG] I have welsummers, moltted javas ( my son calls them hot javas) they are supposed to be americanas but they dotloon like pictures I have seen. Then my husband picked light brahmas.

    Hey FeatherRobin, Welcome to BYC.
    I'm sorry about your chickens, but looks like you've got a beautiful new flock now which is great :) Hope all goes well, enjoy your stay. See you around.

    Welcome to Backyard chickens. If you aren't sure what you have - post photos at "what breed or gender is this." 6 weeks of age + is a good age to try.

    Hi and welcome to BYC - glad that you have joined us. You seem to have an interesting breed mix - certainly a lot more interesting that a mono-flock.

    You may wish to consider joining your state thread as it will put you in touch with other BYC members in your area - https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you

    All the best
