    I will start by introducing myself. I am a stay at home mom with all 4 children starting school in the fall. I decided to spend time with a small hobby of 2 chickens given to us by a friend. one is black unsure of what shes a mix of just that shes beautiful and unique. The other given to us is a red sex link. We then aquired 12 baby chicks. We lost one within a few hours of getting them home. We decided on a mixture we picked up at a farm store. We now have 6 amerucanas (as this is what they were sold to us as) 2 tetra tints and 3 red sex links. I would like to try to identify if there are any roos and will post pics soon. Thank you for letting me join this site i would greatly like to gain as much knoledge on my chickens.

    Quote:Thank you that will be so very helpful. while the 6 sold to us as amerucans really intrigue me one is white with very long tail feathers and greyish legs, the 4 others are all sorts of colors and unique with the grey legs, and the last one really intrigues it has not much of a tail at all lol.
