Hi I'm new to the site as well as new to raising chickens. I have a small mixed flock in my backyard and am learning as I go. I've got 9 chicks ages 3-5 weeks (this makes up my entire flock). I started as a hobby for my girls and myself but I'd also like some eggs out of it. In my flock of chicks I have 3 EE, 1 SF light brahma, 2 brahma bantams (1 light & 1 buff), 2 Cochin bantams-1 red frizzle 1 black and gold with mottling (I've got questions about her coloring), & 1 buff silkie. I can only keep pullets so I'll be asking advice in another forum regarding gender ID as well. Looking forward to some info & advice!
