    We brought home 6 EE chicks that were hatched in the classroom. They are 3 weeks old and 4 more sexed day olds are coming Monday. I think there is a good chance 3 of the first flock are Roos. I'm totally a newbie, but it's a gut feeling. We are lucky to have many places locally that do workshops Etc on keeping backyard chicks, but every time I do a google search about something I'm curious about it brought me to this forum. So excited to join and very excited about are new life with chickens.

    Hi and welcome to BYC - glad that you have joined us, and yes, please post enquiries under the various forums. For example, if you want to confirm the genders of your birds, the post on the "what breed or gender is this?" forum (but i would suggest waiting until they are 6 weeks old), or if they seem to be sick, then post on the "emergencies, diseases, injuries and cures" forum.

    You'll find lots of info in the Learning Centre (even if you have lots of experience)
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center, and if you have a specific topic in mind, just type it in the search box - there's a wealth of information on past and present threads.

    These links may help you for the moment.

    You may wish to consider joining your state thread as it will put you in touch with other BYC members in your area - just type the name of your state in the search box.

    All the best

    When your chicks are 6-8 weeks old you can post photos at "what breed or gender is this."
