    Hello

    New to chickens here. I have 13 RIR chicks about 3 months old.I do not know the sex yet. I have built a coop and run already with laying boxes in it. Any advice will be helpful.

    I'm fairly new to all this as well and can't imagine what it would've been like without BYC.[​IMG] [​IMG] There are so many friendly and helpful people here. My chicks are about the same age. If you take some pictures I'm sure all the BYcers would be happy to help sex them.

    [​IMG] Don't wanna scare you to death, but you might wanna go to the predator section and see what kind of damage predators can do to certain types of coops ... Where do you live?

    I wish you much happiness with your future egg layers!
