    Hey guys! My obsession started last year when we purchased chickens from my job. We had two casualties out of the 16 birds we had started with. Right now we have 9 almost 1 year old chickens 5 almost 2 month old chickens and 4 almost one year old pheonix bantams. Before I departed from my job I purchased 4 more asst bantams, Tux, Edo (who unfortunately went to the coop in the sky last night) Chipmunk and Mud. I have absolutely no idea what they are so maybe you wonderful chicken lovers can help me!

    You can post photos of your birds at "what breed or gender is this." Generally best for them to be at least 6 weeks old. [​IMG]
