    I'm Jill and my husband got me 3 baby chicks for my birthday a few weeks ago! One RIR, one BO and one EE. They are named Mimi, Gigi and Fifi. I'm hoping they're all pullets, but the BO appears to have a large pink comb, so I'm wondering if she is a he. I'll post pictures on the gender board so maybe I can have some help figuring it out.

    I'm loving being a chick owner so far, they're pretty easy to care for. We're building the garden ark and should be done in a few weeks when the girls are ready to go outside. I can't wait to get my first eggs!

    [​IMG] from NH. Don't worry about the large combs on BOs. I had one I thought was a late blooming male until s/he laid an egg. Good luck.
