    Good morning, I am a newbie to chicken raising. We purchased 15 layers and 10 Cornish crosses this past spring. We learned how to butcher ( the internet is great), and are ready to order more meat birds for the fall. Our layers are growing and are 15 weeks so no eggs yet.

    Welcome to the flock. Sounds like you are doing very well with your chickens. Hope eggs will be coming down the pipes soon. What laying breeds do you have?

    You know, it is a mystery to me what chickens we have. I ordered assorted heavy layers and when they came, they were not labeled so....I am not sure.

    If you want to, post pictures of them (full body profiles showing legs and tails work best) on our What Breed and Gender is This? section at https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/15/what-breed-or-gender-is-this, and our experts there can probably ID them for you.
