    Hello!
    I'm new to BYC and this place seems really friendly, I was curious if anyone could help me identify some chicks I got, they were from a grab-bag and I would love to know what they are! If anyone could help me please comment :)
    Also, I've known fora while that it's bad to kiss chicks or cuddle them, is this true? is it ok to cuddle adult chickens perhaps? Very concerned for family health.
    How can keep a Phoenix tail healthy?
    Thank you so much for anyone that can help me. <3

    I'm not sure how old your chicks are, but the best chance for identifying their breed will be when they are around 5 weeks of age. You can post pictures of them here:

    Be sure to read the picture guidelines so the best chance of an accurate id can be done.

    Thanks for joining us!
