    My husband and I started this new adventure of raising baby chicks about 9 weeks ago when we bought 10 chicks. One passed away but we currently have 3 silver laced wyondottes, 2 amber links, 2 white leg horns, and 2 barred rocks. Today we moved them out of our basement and into their permanent coop! My husband spent a few weeks building their coop and run so I was happy to see them out in the nice weather! It was exciting to get them to this step! We don't know the sex of any of our chicks yet but in time I hope we will learn more bout sexing them. We're taking this adventure one day at a time and I'm loving every bit of it so far!

    Thank you! We started reading different ways to sex them and keep changing our minds and going back and forth on our hens or roosters. I'll give it a try and see what we get!
