Hello BackYard Chicken clan!
We are new to the chicken world. I used to help on a farm, but I have never raised chickens before. We want to get into raising chickens because we have heard of their wonderful personalities, quirky mannerisms and it is just an all around fun way to spend family time. You are always learning news things while taking care of these little creatures. Let's face it, FRESH eggs are always a bonus too, right? We recently bought 8 pullets from our local hardware store, because our farm store is going to be sold out of pullets for a while. Although we did a lot of research before we got the chickens, we would still love to hear your stories and advice. The store also said our chickens are Isa Browns. I am not so sure. I know they can change quite dramatically as they grow. I am looking for signs to make sure I have females, but that is so far unclear as well.
Thank you for taking the time to read my new member introduction!
Please keep your comments positive!
Have a wonderful day,
