    :welcome

    If you'd like some help with the breed of your birds, you can find it by posting photos on the "what breed/gender" forum. Just use the search feature to find the forum.

    Thanks for joining us!

    You can get your breeds/genders sorted out at "what breed or gender is this." However it's best to submit pictures when they are 6-8 weeks old. Any earlier and it just a wild guess
