Hey folks, This is my first post to this forum, and much sooner than I expected, at that. I've been considering raising chickens for a while, but expected to put it off a year or two as I develop my gardens and food forest. Oh well! My friend sent out a mass email saying that her professor received six chicks as a prank, and would anyone like them? I don't even know if they're broilers or layers, let alone, breed, age or sex. I'm doing the best I can to give them the right amount of warmth, and they came with a feeder and a tray for water - will get the rest tomorrow. Can anyone offer some help in IDing them, though? Even a guess as to age would be extremely helpful. This pics are of the box they came in - I've already put them into a somewhat larger one, and I'm starting on shredding the newspapers. Thanks for all help!
