    Hi everyone! After a lot of books, research and reading my hubby and I have taken the plunge and adopted some wonderful 7 week old chickens! This is all new to us and I have really valued how informative and friendly all the posts I have been reading are! I am unsure of the sex of all the chickens yet so not sure who will be with us long term and who will be rehomed. I currently am chicken mama to 3 Easter egg pullets, 2 Easter egger/maran mixes which I think are pullets, and 2 Cochins, one is a pullet and one a cockerel I think. I'll know for sure in the weeks to come I imagine, I really hope it's just one roo, since that would be fine :). Just wanted to say thanks and I look forward to getting to know everyone and value all the information and advice I can get! Thanks!!
