    Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum and to having chickens! I purchased 6 babies last Saturday 4/9/2016! Love my little hens! But I'm not sure what they are?! I know one is a a Rhode Island Red, I think the others are Americana and maybe wellsummer? But whatever they are they are adorable!!! My granddaughter is in love!! [​IMG]

    Darling chicks - when they are 6-8 weeks old - post photos at "what breed or gender is this?" to find out what you have. Welcome to Backyard chickens.
