    My wife and I are new to chickens, but BYC helped us greatly in preparation of our new hobby. We built a first timers coop and run and have purchased some chicks over the past 15 weeks and now have 9 total of misc breeds. All the research in the world does not help me in identifying a few of them but I am sure I will figure them out eventually. Now that our rookie intro is done, I will utilize all of your knowledge inside this forum in the rearing of these cool birds.

    Welcome to BYC! Glad you decided to join us. I can see at a glance in your pictures that you have a Rhode Island Red, Black Australorp, and a Red Sex Link, which are all excellent layers (the Red Sex Links are egg laying machines). If you post them on What Breed or Gender Is This? at https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/15/what-breed-or-gender-is-this, it would be good if you can get full body profiles, showing both the legs and tails, as it makes identifying them a lot easier. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your flock.
