New to the chicken world


Mar 4, 2018
After a bunch a research we finally got 6 little mixed bantams today. Super excited to finally have some chicks! Worried one might be a rooster, but we'll see in a few weeks.

My big question is, what breeds did we get. I know it is easier to tell once they actually start looking like chickens, but would love some guesses! There's 3 different types (though I'm thinking the yellow headed and black/ copper headed are the same just different color variations)

G’Day from down under citypeepers :frow Welcome and Congratulations! :clap

My breed guess; Adorable! I know, not much help :p However, if you post some pictures on the Breed or Gender Forum, while they are too young for gender guesses, someone might know the breed by colouring etc.

I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

If you include your general location on your profile, this will assist others. Location, climate, season etc can be important factors when members are responding to any questions you may have and vice versa.

You might want to also Find Your State Thread and pop in and say hello.

BYC has a Learning Centre and also Topic of the Week discussions which I have found to be a great resource, informative and sometimes entertaining; so definitely worth checking out. I see you mention you have done a bunch of research but these two might be of assistance at this stage:
Topic/Question of the week - Brooding and supplementing heat for chicks
Topic of the Week - Raising Chicks

If you would like to share more Pictures and Stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out ;)

Best wishes and good luck!
