    Hi everyone!
    We now have 3 Jersey Giants, 3 Plymouth rocks, 2 Rhode Island Reds, 2 Wyandottes, and 2 turkeys..
    We're still waiting to see who's a hen and who's a roo. Still have everyone seperated by age( 2 groups, almost 3 weeks apart)

    When your birds are about 8 weeks old, you can post photos at "what breed or gender is this." The good folks there will sort them out for you.

    Welcome to Backyard Chickens :yesss:

    :welcome:frowDid you get them as pullets or straight run. Roosters have their advantage and disadvantages. I love my handsome man!!! Your at the perfect place as a chicken owner. I wondered how I raised my mine before I found BYC. Great knowledge & experience and just plain fun
