    OMG! I can't believe I spent hours and hours researching breeds, and now most of them are sold out for pullets, so I ended up getting breeders choice assortment! So I will figure it out when they get here. I hope the breeder makes a list of what hbreeds he ships.....

    Hi and [​IMG] - glad to have you join us.

    Maybe its better in the long term for you to have a mixed bag as you will become familiar with what breed suits you and your climate sooner than only getting one or two breeds.

    You'll find lots of info in the Learning Centre https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center, and if you have a specific topic in mind, just type it in the search box as there's a wealth of information on past and present threads.

    These links may help you for the moment.

    All the best

    You can always post photos of your chicks at 6 weeks old at "what breed or gender is this." Hope you get a nice assortment.
