Hello everyone. I am new to this site and fairly new to chicken raising. I mean I have been around them in some way or another my whole life but didn't really bother with them. Recently I acquired some chickens to start getting eggs and more importantly as a stress relief and would love to learn more about them. I know their age and breed but that's about it for most of them. Please help! Breda Fowl age 7 months rooster & 2 hens, Bantam momma with 6 chicks 11 weeks, 4 Buff Orpingtons age 4 months sex unknown, 1 Buff Orpington/Blue Samatrun cross age 4 month sex unknown, Breda Fowl age 4 months sex unknown. How do I tell the sex? When should they start laying? When will momma ween chicks? HELP!!!!!
