Hi Everyone - I have been planning and researching chickens for over a year and now I'm ready for my babies to arrive. A friend of mine is raising 3 Rhode Island Red chicks for me with her own chickens. Then I decided I want more than 3 chickens, so I ordered 2 Cream Legbar juvenile pullets. In about 3-4 weeks, I'll have my flock! I've been doing so much chicken research in preparation for a successful experience and I've really enjoyed learning from the Backyard Chickens forum. Everyone here has been a wealth of information! Thanks for sharing your experiences and I look forward to learning even more as a member!
New to chickens & excited for my own flock

It seems there is always something new to learn about poultry, that's part of what makes it interesting. And the chicken tv is great!
Enjoy your new flock. It's nice to have you join us!

Congratulations on the start of your flock.
It would be a good idea if you start reading articles on "integrating new birds (RIR) with the Cream Legbars - as they will be total strangers to each other. At 2 weeks of age they start determining pecking order.
