Hi everyone!! New chicken owner in Central Fl, and dont let my user name imply that I am any kind expert on chickens. My 5 yr old daughter and 8yr old son starting calling me the "Chicken Boss" when we first got our chickens, so it stuck. We started our small flock of 5 April 1st with a mix of a RIR, Gold Laced Wyndotte, California White, Barred Rock and what we were told was an Americana, but have sinced learned that it might be a Blue Jersey Giant - will post pics soon for help identifying. Also not sure if all are pullets - a few of them are in question.
So far so good - coop was fun to build, maintenance is minimal due to being able to free range during the day and having a watering system, gravel/sand run = easy daily cleaning and the chickens are a blast for the entire family!! Learned what little I know from BYC and look forward learning more and sharing info when able.
