Im just joining but have been referencing this website since I started with my chickens. I have 5 "teenagers" I call them. I got 5 chicks in March and they are now in their coop and laying, except for one. 2 Americanas and 3 Wyandotte. I love animals and have found I love my 'girls' just as much. We love their eggs and its just enough for our extended family to enjoy. Thanks for all your information and I know I will need help and advice in the future. .
