I am brand new to BYC and chickens. I got a dozen two and a half weeks ago: two Gold Laced Wyandotte, two Silver Laced Wyandotte, two Dominiques, two Black Australorps, two Easter Eggers, and two "assorted brown egg layers." We are working on the coop now and hope to have it ready in the next two weeks (my husband is having shoulder surgery and will be out of commission for awhile). I have been reading BYC a lot, but just decided to post as I got some good photos of my chicks. Glad I did, because I didn't know which ines were which! Thankfully, I think I'm mostly straightened it now. We also have three cats and a chihuahua.
