    Hello from Kentucky. Last week I brought home my first set of chicks. Bought from a local raising her own. Told they are Aracauna, 1 hen 2 roos...and 5 RIR hens. At least I hope that is what I got. Here are my babies, I am so excited! Looking forward to the egg laying! [​IMG]

    Hi and welcome to BYC - glad to have you onboard.

    If you check out the Learning Centre, you'll find a whole host of resources on all things chicken.

    https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

    Your state thread is worth joining as you will get to know other BYC members in your area (https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/270925/find-your-states-thread). In fact, the search box should become your best friend [​IMG] Lastly but by no means least, the members here are amazing - very friendly and helpful, so if you need an answer to a question or simply want some reassurance that what you are doing is ok, then post away - we all help each other out here at BYC.

    All the best

    Glad you joined us at Backyard chickens. If you have any doubts about the breeds they are, you can post photos of them - at around 6-8 weeks of age at" What breed or gender is this." for more opinions.
