    Hi, my name is Kara. Recently we've brought home 11 chicks. Already have 8 horses, a donkey, 7 parrots, 4 dogs, and two cats, so why the heck not some chickens? lol!

    Still workin on getting the ok to bring home a goat and some pigs.

    Anyways, I'm possibly looking into raising my own meat rabbits, perhaps showing some chickens, doing all the 4H kind of things I missed growing up on Florida's east coast, glad to finally be home in the country where i've always belonged!

    I'm really hoping to find out what our black/yellow chicks are :)

    The majority are just the TSC chicks, were told 3 were buff pullets and the other three were about a week old so itty bit and unknown. Not sure i trust them at all on those 3 that were "certainly" pullets xD but we'll see. Interesting how three of them have the brown striping down their backs.

    my silkies and serama are my favorites though :) wish i knew for certain THEY were pullets, atleast.

    Your black and yellow birds appear to be Gold Laced Wyandottes.
