    Hello all! My name is Kate and I recently became a first time chicken Momma. I look forward to raising a happy healthy flock and of course eating lots of oh so lovely eggs. These are my girls (and maybe one roo).
    Cecilia, Brandy, Jolene, Fancy, and Sweet Jane. (Jane, a Barred Rock is the pullet in question)Fancy is hiding behind Jane.

    You can post photos at "what breed or gender is this." Its best to wait till they are 6-8 weeks of age. Is the buff one older than the others?

    Right on, I'll do that. They are 2 weeks in this picture taken a few days ago. If you are taking about the one on the far left she is supposed to be a Rhode Island Red and is the same age as the rest. Definitely the largest of the group.
