    Hello all, I am new to the forums and new to chickens!

    We have eight gorgeous chicks (hopefully all ladies). We have two Barred Plymouth Rock, two Buff Orpingtons, two Amauracanas (although I believe they are probably EEs), one White Leghorn, and one mystery chick (I think she might be a Faverolle).

    Here are our ladies. We have had them for about a week and a half now.

    When they are 6-8 weeks old you can post their photos at "what breed or gender is this."
