    Hello! I am brand spanking new to chickens. We got our first 6 chicks on May 28th at around a week old. I have no idea what any of them are except one is a bantam. I got 2 more on June 10th. Hopefully that's the most chicken math I do for right now! I found this site by googling all of my millions of questions and have found it to be amazing! I would be more lost without you guys. When I'm not watching my chicks do their thing I like to crochet and cross stitch. My 9 year old daughter and husband also keep me busy! We also have 2 dogs (a golden retriever and a mastiff/lab) and a cat. I'm looking forward to being a part of this community and can't wait to see what more I can learn by being here!

    Thanks!
    The two black are ayam cemani, or at least that's what she told me! I have no clue what the others are. I was told the little yellow one on the left side is a bantam.

    We've made sure to love on them every day! and I plan to ask questions! That's actually why I finally introduced myself. I've been lurking for a couple of weeks :) And so far this site has been such a HUGE help!
