    Hello BYC Members,

    My name is Ivette, and I am in Central FL.

    I've only had chickens for about 6 months. I got them as week old chicks, and although I purchased them as pullets, 7 out of 9 turned out to be cockerels. Today I traded 6 of them for 4 hens.

    Well, I'm looking forward to being a part of the BYC community.

    Thanks!

    I'm sorry about your too many roosters. Good luck with the new hens, though!

    Glad you joined us at Backyard chickens. The younger the chick, the less likely they are accurately sexed. You're very fortunate you could swap them for hens.

    Welcome to BYC, Ivette! Glad you decided to join our flock. I'm sorry you got all of those roosters, but glad you were able to trade them for 4 hens. It's unusual to find someone who would make that trade. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. What kind of chickens do you have?
