    Hey all. My name is Tina and I have been raising chickens for 5 years now. I have several different kinds of roosters and hens. I also added some new babies to my flock this year. Some of the breeds I have are Silver Laced Wyandottes, Easter Eggers, Backyard Chickens (they were chicks my hens hatched out here) Red Sex Link, White Rocks, 2 Cochin Roosters. The new additions are 5 polish chicks and 10 bantam chicks. I don't know what breed the chicks are yet. I bought them from Cackle Hatchery and I got the Purebred Bantam Assorted Special. So I look forward to seeing what breed these chicks are going to be. I also have 2 guineas, 2 adult white pekin ducks, and 5 ducklings that are Rouens, Indian Runners, and a Khaki Campbell.
    I just thought I would introduce myself and say hi. I look forward to getting to know other chicken lovers like myself.

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Sounds like you have a nice mix of chickens! When you get some pictures of the chicks, you can post their pics in our What Breed and Gender section for help with the sexes and breeds.... https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/15/what-breed-or-gender-is-this

    Enjoy your new additions! If you have any questions about anything here on BYC, feel free to ask.

    Welcome to our flock! :)

    Morning, Tina.

    Isn't it a good day to listen to the chickens?

    What part of Wild, Wonderful, West Virginia are you in?
    Me, I'm down on the Ohio River.
