Hi, everyone. I'm in central CT, too. I've been haunting BYC for several months and am glad to see neighbors here!
I'm raising my first flock of 10: 2 each of Rhode Island Reds, Araucanas, and Ameraucanas, 3 Australorps and a Buff Orpington roo. Dynahoe Dave got his first chickens from my sister and brother in law. (Hey, Dave!) I was going to free range mine when they're older, but now we've decided to make a permanent run and let them out only under supervision. We wondered if the mild winter meant that more predators survived.
Anyway I just wanted to say hello and introduce myself. My fledgeling coop is here: http://www.backyardchickens.com/a/adas-gypsy-chicks Have a great day, all!
