Hello everyone! My name is Krista and I have learned so much on this journey that started on May 21, 2016. I have had some hardships with loosing one chick but have raised the other 5 successfully so far. I love my little chicken ladies except I'm unsure if one or two of them are Roos! I sadly would be heartbroken because I really love my barred rock whom is now sqwacking and carries on in the morning just like a young rooster (I think). Fortunately for this little chicken it's name is Messi (soccer player) so that's one good thing....lol! I live within city limits and am not allowed roosters and I think I may have a hard time finding a home for this guy.....it won't be my freezer either! Any suggestions? Thank you everyone....I'm really excited about this site with all of you knowledgable and friendly chicken lovers.
