New to chickens. My first group are 9 weeks old; Rhode Island Reds, I bought another group of egg layers. I’m still trying to figure out what breeds they are. Decided to try to hatch some, they’re about 5 weeks now; Cinnamon Queens, australorps, Polish and more we haven’t figured out yet. I’ve used this site a lot while I was preparing for the chicks. I didn’t realize there were so many breeds until I started researching this site. We have 2 dogs a shih tzu & St. Bernard. Love watching as they explore their surroundings and interact with each other.
