  1. Hola amigos.
    I stumbled upon your forum after searching endlessly about baby chicks that were given to me from my cleaning lady. I told her a few weeks ago that I wanted some backyard chickens and VOILA...she surprised me. LOL.
    I am clueless as to what she gifted me, Not to mention the language barrier, I don't know much about chicks at all. However, I'm over the moon and super excited to get my flock in order.
    I'm American but live in Cabo San Lucas, MX full-time. Lots of chickens/chicks running around in the neighborhoods. These little babies could be any breed or just BAJA mutts, like most of the street dogs. LOL.

    Posting some pics of the (2) lil' black ones that she gave me yesterday. Any ideas on possible breed or sex would be greatly appreciated.
    Sincerely,
    Clueless in Cabo :)

    Hi and welcome to BYC and congrats on your new hobby. Local mutts are likely to be the most healthy birds for your area - Darwin kinda stuff :)


    Here are some links to key resources:

    WELCOME! I agree on the "mutt" chickens being the best for your area. It will be fun for you to see how they turn out, and what color eggs you get...and, how many are hens, and how many ate roosters. ;)
