    hello!
    I've wanted chickens for quite some time, I FINALLY brought home 6 girls (hopefully, roos not allowed)
    2 Brahmas.....I think, I was told they were Leghorns at 2 days old
    1 barred rock
    1 Rhode Island red
    2 buff OrpingtonS

    Their about 7 weeks old now. I'm still in the process of building their coop!

    Welcome!!!! I bought a couple of chicks this year to and BYC helped me find everything i needed. They answered my questions only a day or two after I asked them and helped me pick out what breeds would be best for me! I'm sure you will find everything you need here!![​IMG]

    [​IMG] so glad you have joined us.

    Better get that coop finished, they are likely quite ready to move to the permanent home.
