    Hi, I have always had larger animals and livestock and after my son shipped off to USMC and daughter is in high school and working and my husband constantly travels, I thought I would add to my hobby.
    I got 5 chicks 3 weeks ago and in my haste didnt write down their breeds. I know for certain I have 3 banded pullets, the other 2 are up in air still althought I am leaning towards roo on my white one.
    Not sure how this pic will turn out, but this is their first day playing outside while I cleaned their area up.

    No photo but, if you can post some at "what breed or gender is this," the good folks there will do their best. It's very helpful if you mention age of chicks in photo. [​IMG]
