Hello everyone. I am new to the site and to raising chickens as the adult. My grandmother had chickens all over the dairy as a kid but i was never in charge of thier care. I certainly knew and know almost nothing about breeds. I have learned so much over the past few months, most of it form ya all. I love this community and how helpful and friendly everyone can be. I recently tried my first batch of chicks in the incubator and i failed. as my daughter would say an epic fail. I do have hope holding out for my ducks that are due to hatch anytime. I recently purchased 34 baby chicks at the auction and have ended up with 7 roo's and 23 hens after a month and a half. I know what i was told they were when i purchased them but i have ended up with three birds that do not look like what i was told. I was told they were barred rock and most turned out to be so, or look accordingly, however, I have a 2 hens and this rooster than do not fit the bill. Can anyone help me out. What do you think they may be? They are such beauts. Thank you in advance for any advice as my husband children and i set out ont his wonderful journy building our farm and becoming more self suficient.
