    Hello all I was looking for a community that could help me on my journey of raising chickens. We have 5 chick that are just shy of a month old. We got them at our local tractor supply from a mixed pullet pen ( all supposed to be hens). They all looked similar then but now they all look different. I also think one is a not a hen had a large comb above its beak coming in. Just hoping to get some info on their breeds and the best way to care of them and of anything they need

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! The learning centre has some great articles on raising chicks. Here is the link https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center Posting some pics in the what breed gender section is a great idea so other members can help you identify them.

    Good luck with them and be sure to ask any questions you have, the forum is very diverse with many sections on all aspects of poultry.

    Enjoy BYC :frow

    Glad you joined the flock. Some breeds - even the females have large, floppy combs. What color is the suspected rooster?
