Hey everyone! Here are my babies, all purchased locally. The babies were bought from 3 kids who raised them for a school project. They claimed the chicks are barred rocks. Not so sure. The older girls are 1) Wyandotte 2) leghorn? I'm new to this and I would just like to be sure of what I have and appreciate all of your experience and insight. Thank you for allowing me to be apart of your community! P. S. Could use advise on overcoming my fear of holding them. The leghorn allows me to pet her, the other one is shy & runs from me. The babies were first & they screamed when I picked them up so it freaked me out! I thought I was hurting them. Hahaha YOU would've too had you heard that squeal. "We" are learning about one another together. The older ones were stuck in an overcrowded coop but the babies were held a lot! My husband (grew up on farm) says that my birds are happy & like me more than him so I'm "a good mother hen"!
