My name is Jennifer and I live in Athens, Texas. I've been a lurker on BYC for several years now and finally decided to join! I grew up around chickens when I was young and have had them recently for the last 3 1/2 years. I currently have 11 chickens, five are 3 1/2 year old hens (3 brown sex-links, 1 gold laced wyandotte and 1 silver phoenix) and six are 12 week old pullets (3 barred rocks and 3 black sex-linked). My 12 week old flock is still in their teenage brooder. They are outgrowing it so quickly! I so enjoy having this young group around, I really love chickens!
