    Nice to meet you Ana.. You start a new thread just the way you started your introduction. For instance if you want to know the breed/gender of your chicks. You start a thread at
    "what breed or gender is this." Six to 8 weeks of age is a good time for that. A short cut for finding things is to put item or name in the search box, and it will pop up.

    Hello Ana in Chicago....

    I just never thought there would be many chickens in Chicago.
    Bears maybe (Chicago Bears). But not chickens.

    As Drumstick Diva said, you just sort of poke around and start
    you a thread where you think it goes.

    You just got your chickens? What breed were they supposed to
    be?


    Spook...who thought Chicago was too crowded for him. Big city.

    I bought them at a feed store 2 of them were labled easter eaggers americunas(? Myspelling is horrible.) My ohter one was labled amberlink although i had to call and make sure. I have done so uch research over the past year before getting them but reading about them is different from actually having them.

    Their names are peanut butter ,jelly , and banana. [​IMG]
