    Hey guys! I just started rasing chickens, I have four as of now. [​IMG]I live in N.C! I have a standard buff cochin ( rooster and hen), and bantam Serama frizzle (rooster and
    hen). They are both very playful. I collect eggs from them almost daily and I incubate them. My best friend that lives in Georgia has influenced me into chickens. I have
    always loved chickens, but never done anything with them. So my friend game me 3 as a "starter". He gave me (all bantam) a silkie rooster

    , and
    hen, and a blue cochin. My old coop wasn't very stable, a raccoon got into it and killed all of them.[​IMG] Now my dad and I have built a new coop
    from scratch. We feel pretty accomplished! I plan
    to raise and breed chickens for a long time. I mainly use their eggs to incubate them and
    sell them as chicks.

    This IS my new hobby!
