    Good day ya'll! I am a brand new chicken keeper and am poking around trying to learn all I can! I bought my first 7 hicks April 30 from TSC. They are all bantams, 6 clearly gl sebrights one mystery chick (who happens to just be the sweetest thing!)

    On Monday I added 3 Olive Eggers to the group and all is going swimmingly so far! Those little OE's put my bantams into perspective on size from the get go, lol! But, I adore their demeaner. Great chicks!

    I look forward to getting tonknow you all.

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! It sure sounds like you are having a ball with your new chicks :clap Theye sure lots of fun and very rewarding. Watching their personalities emerge is great to watch. The learning centre has some great articles that I'm sure you find very helpful ~ https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

    Good luck and be sure to ask any questions. Everyone here to help and very friendly.

    Enjoy BYC :frow

    The little peepers just bore a little hole in my heart that is certain!

    Does the mystery chick have feathered feet? If so, look up mille fleur d'uccle chick pictures and see if that might be what you have. D'uccles are pretty sweet little birds. I'm envious of your sebrights - I've always wanted those!! They look like little works of art when grown!

    No, the feet have no feathers. If (s)he were a dog I would call he(r) brindle in color. (S)has a different temperament than the sebrights as well as coloring. Since I can't find any info I'm guessing mixed. I love the uniqueness of the colors.
