New to Chickens!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi! My daughter wanted to show poultry this year at our county fair so we have purchased a few chickens to show. We just got them today! We have done a lot of reading to prepare ourselves to raise these birds. We live on a farm in N.E. Iowa we raise cattle, crops, and raise quarter horses.

How many and what type of chickens did you acquire?

Welcome! Hope that your chickens get acquainted with the blue ribbons. Fantastic!

Did you get them as chicks, or are they started?

I love to smile! Smiling is my favorite! :D

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
