    HOWDY! My family and I are about to recieve our first set of easter eggers. I am building a coop now and preparing for their arrival. We have a cattle ranch and do well with that, but chickens will do more for our young boys and with them helping around the ranch.i am really interested in how to find out if we have males or females. Hope to see soon.

    Once your chicks are 6 weeks old you can post clear photos of them at "what breed or gender is this," to receive very informative replies. [​IMG]

    Hi and welcome to BYC - i agree with DD about posting for gender.

    You'll find lots of info in the Learning Centre
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center, and if you have a specific topic in mind, just type it in the search box - there's a wealth of information on past and present threads.

    You may wish to consider joining your state thread as it will put you in touch with other BYC members in your area - https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/270925/find-your-states-thread

    All the best
