    Hey guys!
    I'm really looking forward to learning and chatting with y'all!

    I'm new to chicken keeping and just got my coop set up, and bought a moderate-sized mixed group.

    I have two Silver Laced Wyandottes (pretty sure one is a roo...), two Gold Laced Wyandotte Bantams, a blue Silkie, a white Silkie, a grey Candy Cane Polish, a Sicilian Buttercup, and an Ameracauna (at least that's how she was labelled at the store).

    Not much more to say just yet! :D

    Hello and :welcome
    If you're unsure of the sex of your chickens, you can post them to the "What breed or gender is this" section.
    Your Ameraucana is almost certainly an Easter Egger. Not a bad thing, that's just how most hatcheries and feed stores sell them.

    Thanks so much Kyanite! I've got a sneaking suspicion that one of my little Silver Lace chicks is a roo, and so the other may be a pullet since she's got no real comb yet. But I'll definitely post to see what everyone thinks!
    And yeah, figured about the EE, there. She's pretty anyway :D
