    I live in Brampton, Ontario and my mom lives 2 hrs north. Second year with chickens and we are loving it. This site and the members are amazing. My first 'go to' place if I want to do some research. Thanks!

    We have 7 -1 yr old red sex link hens. And 13 chicks ranging from 9 weeks to 6 weeks. 2 Blue Ameraucana, 4 Easter Egger, 4 mix (Orpington cross of some sort) and 3 Plymouth barred rock. We are very new to breeds and chick raising in general so the threads on guessing the breed or sex of the chicks has been helpful. I think we have mostly cockerels, but I am keeping optimistic.

    You may also want to post on "Canadians, check-in-here." You may have some chickeners living near you. Welcome to BYC
