    Thank you for the welcome. I'm new to raising chickens and I look forward to learning from all of you.

    G’Day from down under Countryluv70 [​IMG] Welcome!

    I recommend a visit to the Learning Centre; lots of good tips there: https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

    You might want to say hello on your local thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you ‘Find your State’s thread.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]

    Greetings from Kansas, Countryluv70, and [​IMG]! It's great to have you in our community and there is simply no better place to be than BYC for the beginning - or experienced - chicken keeper. The first stop I recommend is the Learning Center here: https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center It is packed with useful articles that will serve as your guide on your poultry journey. Also, if you'd like to chat with local poultry folk, there are a couple Canada threads in the link below. Stop by and introduce yourself: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you
    Best wishes and thanks for joining BYC! [​IMG]

    Oops! Leila beat me to it!!

    They are mixed and honestly not sure. I acquired them from a school classroom.

    I can do that as soon as I remove the two roos as theyou are super aggressive. It's a two person job to feed and collect the few eggs I get.

    I've heard the meanest roos make the best soup. Never a good reason to keep a bad roo or two. Your girls will be much less stressed without roosters and lay just as many eggs without them.

    I agree with that. So soup pot it is for those boys.
