Hello from the desert!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone! So excited to be a part of this community.
This is my first time raising chickens. We have 2 Rhode Island Reds and 2 Barred Rocks.
I got them as chicks on Feb. 27th, and am still not sure what their sexes are. But im hoping for 3 hens and 1 rooster.
Ive discovered that they have A LOT of personality. They do not like anything in the shade of blue. They love plain yogurt mixed with their food. A tip a friend gave me. And they really love chasing my 8 year old, and surprisingly, they seem to enjoy when he chases them.
I originally got them thinking if i have more than one rooster i could always eat one of them. After a month and a half, i cant even imagine the idea of not having all four of them.

Please post photos of them at "what breed or gender is this."    It's best to know.

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
