We were given 9 chicks when they were a few days old. They are now 7-8 weeks old. Thanks to everyone on this forum for advice on predator protection, coop design, feeding, and basic care! Could not have done it without you. I would like to know what breed they are. Also thinking quite a few are roosters - they seem to have more red growing on their faces and their eyes are encircled with red as well. Lots of pecking going on but I check them daily and no injuries. They have plenty of room and food and fresh water and a heat lamp in their coop. I am in upstate NY.
