    hello, just wanted to do the intro thread. Just got my first 5 chickens and they are about 3.5 weeks old now. My daughters school hatched them as a class project so we've had them from the start. Excited to learn a lot from ya'll!

    Welcome to the Backyard chickens flock. When your chicks are 6 weeks old, you can post photos of them at "what breed or gender is this." to find out what you have.
