I am new to BackyardChickens and I just placed my order for chicks today. They will be delivered June 8. I ordered 25 layer chickens and 15 bantam st.Run chicks. Does anyone know how to sex chicks at a young age? Also----here is my coop!

Oops, no photo of your coop. About the earliest you can figure out gender is 6-8 weeks. You can post photos at "what breed or gender is this?"

Welcome....you are now entering the chicken crazy zone where math, as you learned, no longer applies(chicken math). Enjoy the huge amount of resources available through the members here. There are soooo many master breeders that readily give advice to newbies like us. Also check out the Learning Center where you will find most any info you need.

Good morning and welcome to BYC!

What breed of chicks did you order? And yes, please share pictures when you get them. Photos are always fun to see.

Enjoy your new flock!
