    thank you so much! we started very small 5 years ago with 3 hens, that we inherited from someone who could not keep them. a barred rock, Penny, buff orpington Lucy, and a red sex link Izzy (who sadly passed away in April of this year)

    we also just recently acquired 2 1 year old cream crested legbars

    we also have 4 new chicks which I am still trying to identify the breeds

    [​IMG] so glad to have you join us.

    Likely someone will help you with the breed ID's - but often they need to be a littler older.

    The bottom photo of the barred chick looks like my BR's did at that age, but several breeds with barring look the same to me [​IMG]

    Welcome to Backyard chickens. When your chicks are 6-8 weeks old, you can post photos of them at "what breed or gender is this," Please mention their age in photos - as it make a big difference in rendering opinions.
