    26 ladies who will be 2 weeks old tomorrow (we think they're all pulleys.... Maybe a roo in the mix --- or a few!) all will be layers as far (as I am concerned) at this time!

    I've been lurking and using BYC as a resource for the last month and figured it was time to make this official!

    Thank you! I ended up posting a Hello in the Canadian board as well--- thank you for tha!

    We ordered a mixed batch of leftovers so we aren't certain what quantity of each of the 5 breeds--- they are all dual purpose. A mix of red rock, barred Plymouth Rock, Rhode Island Red, red Sussex, and Colombian Rock...

    My guess right now:

    1 x barred rock
    8 x red rock cross
    9 x Columbian rock
    8 x orangey chicks so could be red Sussex or Rhode Island Red from what I understand....
