    Hi guys!

    I’m Susie, a newbie! I’m in Perth Australia and recently added a golden laced Wyandotte and a Plymouth Rock to our fam.
    It’s myself, hubby rocky, girl sienna 2.5 years and Elijah boy 5 months living in surburbia but wishing to be in the country on a semi self sufficient property. ( hence username haha)
    Starting the dream with just two chickens. My guess is the Plymouth Rock is a pullet and Wyandotte rooster. Anyone wish to correct me?
    They are 6 weeks old today.

    The one on the left of the 2nd photo looks to me like a Cockerel.

    That would be my vote as far as the barred rock, and I’m sure others with more knowledge than I will weigh in. Basically just wanted to say how very cute they are! I especially love the second picture of them side by side in the basket, so sweet!

    Hello Countrydreamin.
    Welcome to BYC.
    That semi self sufficient life style....the amount of work and commitment is staggering if you are going to make it work.

    Hello Susie and welcome to BYC! :frow Glad you joined.
    I think your chicks are a bit young to sex just yet.

    Welcome to BYC :frow
    Your Golden laced Wyandotte looks like a cockerel and your Plymouth Rock looks like a hen but they’re still a bit young to be certain.

    Hi Susie and welcome to BYC. I agree with your gender conclusions.

    On this link you'll find lots of information on almost every aspect of keeping birds - from coop building ideas, to incubating eggs - https://www.backyardchickens.com/articles/

    Each week, various topics are discussed, which can be a great resource - https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/topic-of-the-week-thread-archives . Ditto the Learning Centre - https://www.backyardchickens.com/articles/

    This is a useful link of BYC guides to take a look at announcements-feedback-issues-guides.3 I’d suggest including your location using the guide in that link. You can use this link to contact members in your area - Aussie Thread

    Best wishes

    Pork Pie
