Just thought I would introduce myself. I live in Missouri on our little 3 acres in the Ozarks.I grew up in the big city of Houston, TX but have always dreamed of the country life. Just after we bought this place my sister in law lost all but 3 of her hens to a tornado in Kansas. Their coop was blown away as well as the family home. She knew I wanted chickens so, I inherited her girls who were about 2 years old. I think they are Production Reds. I have had them for 3 years now and am finally ready to try with babies!
I have gotten so much information from BYC ! After doing my research on breeds here I chose to start a mixed flock with my new babies. I got mine from a local hatchery the morning they hatched. It has been so much fun watching them grow and change right before my eyes.
I am looking forward to learning more from everyone and sharing my experiences with you,
