My 3 dogs are just sitting at the brooder looking at me going ok .... DAD - now what have you brought home!.. I am attaching a photo, well, I am going to try and attach a photo! The girls need names, so if anyone has Ideas for names let me know.! Oh yeah, I forgot, it is because of all you, that I have ventured into this!! Thank You All.

    Names: My friend has 4 chickens with the best chicken names ever; General Grant, Ophelia, Esmerelda, and Othello. Haha. All hens too! I always thought long fancy names were fun for chickens [​IMG]

    I Visited U-tube, and there was a few videos of Mike Rowe "the worst jobs guy)" and there is a way to sex your chicks by their wings within the first 2 days. They say it works, do not really know, but worth watching.
