    Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us! :) I would recommend posting pictures of your chicken in the "What Breed Or Gender Is This?" section.

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. I'm not seeing any pics and trying to ID birds without pics is like shooting in the dark. If you can get some photos posted, I'd be happy to take a look at your birds. :eek:) If you haven't done so already, definitely check out our Learning Center at https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center. There is lots of useful information there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.

    I went over and took a look at the four pics. I'm thinking the birds there are Black Australorp mixes around 6 months old. The bird in the two top pics is a cockerel and the two in the bottom two pics are pullets.
