    Greetings from TN. I am new to chickens but have been enjoying them for the last 6 months and I have so many questions. I have been finding myself coming back to this website for many of my questions so I thought it was best to join. I think my first question will be if anyone can help me determine the sex of my latest silkies. If anyone can help with that please let me know and I can post some photos as I love to show them off anyway. [​IMG]

    Hi and :welcome

    I like your birds, they're very nice. I don't know what breed they are. Hopefully someone else does. :lol: If not you could try the breeds and genders section.
