    Hi all,

    I am raising my first group of chickens, 27 in all! I bought a variety of straight run chicks and believe I have several breeds represented in my little group! Hind sight is 20-20...I really regret buying straight run (from a very nice friend) because I am now realizing I may have more roosters than hens!! They are 9 weeks old now and I am in the process of trying to figure out who the girls and boys are! It's been quite difficult since they are all different breeds. Nevertheless I have been enjoying them so and I'm glad to have found this site! Looking forward to learning how to post a picture of some of them to get opinions on the matter of hen be rooster!

    Hi and [​IMG] - glad that you have joined us.

    Its best to post pics in the "what breed or gender is this?" forum. If you take a pic, save it to your desktop and then start a new thread and click on the icon showing 2 mountains and a sun, you'll be able to drag and drop your photo there. Once you click "OK" it will appear in your message.
    Good luck
