    Just wondering how long it is until the chicks look like the adult chickens they will become? Do I need to wait until the first molt?

    I've checked out a few sites, inc. McMurray hatchery, and still cannot identify some chicks. I'm having trouble getting really good pictures, but I will try and post here. If anyone knows, please tell me. I can't wait to find out what they are!

    Okay, how do I post pictures on this site. I seem to only be able to load one picture.

    That's wonderful. Are you a 4H kid, or an adult who helps out and shows? Idon't know much about 4H. You had said you show Jersey Giants for a living. I found that intriguing. I've never shown, but see so many posts about showing that my interest has been peaked.

    I'll try again to upload photos. I did use the "choose file" icon, but it seemed to only take one photo. When i uploaded a second one, it repalced the first. Just have to get used to this site, I guess. Thanks for the reply. I appreciate it.

    Okay, I am going to try once more. Thanks. Some [​IMG]may be duplicates, but I'll try not to do that. Having some trouble here, so I am going to post each as a new thread, listing chicks 1-16, I think it is. Please bare with me. I am new to this site as well as a different computer than I normally use, so is challenging.
