Excited to learn more...

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I am in central Texas and I am new to chicken keeping.  I am looking forward to being able to sit down and read through the wealth of information on keeping my flock healthy and happy.  I am open to the easiest way of doing things!

 

I have a backyard coop and run that my husband built for me from scratch. I added 14 chickens which I am raising for eggs.  They consist of 2 black jersey giants, 4 rhode island reds, 4 buff orpingtons, 2 barred rocks, and 2 white leghorns.  They are 8 weeks old as of yesterday.  I know I have one male leghorn and one hen, but am unsure of the reds and orpingtons.  I'm hoping to get some help with that as I read and learn more.  The jersey giants are both hens.

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
