    [​IMG] Hi! I just got my first flock of chickens at the beginning of April and this site and the forums have been a WEALTH of information that has helped me so very much!

    I just would like to thank everyone and I'm going to start posting some questions soon, so watch out because I have a lot of them!

    I have (and I don't know if they're roosters or hens!):
    2 barred rock feather footed bantams - one with a deformed foot who is the fastest chicken!
    1 big white mixed chicken with some black spots
    1 that I thought was white but is turning yellow with light brown tips on the ends of it's feathers
    2 black chickens - was told they were barred Plymouth rocks but, I only see a slight change in their feathers to gray.
    2 Spotted Sussex

    HEY!

    Welcome to BYC... so glad you found us!

    Don't worry about those Barred Rocks... soon you'll start seeing the black and white feathers come out.
