Hi we are in San Diego CA and are new to raising chickens. We got our first 2 chickens from a friend that no longer was able to care for them. We have been really happy with the whole experience. I run a home daycare and the children just love seeing the chickens. We recently were able to hatch four of the eggs that our cream leg-bar chicken laid. We had 2 of the chicks hatch that are black and the other 2 are the cream color but i can't tell if they are hens or roosters :/ I have 5 children of my own and they help with feeding and cleaning and like to spend their free time petting the chickens. I hope to learn a lot more with the BYC website resources....

I don't know if they "pure breed" they were laid by a true cream leg-bar but the rooster was a gold duckwing so not sure what that would end up being....
