I got into chickens about 4 yrs. ago. Most of the chickens got eaten and I gave the few remaining away. However, I decided to give it a try again last year and did real well. This past spring of 2011, I added about 24 more to the 22 I currently had. I love them and they are a great hobby!
All together I have a Bantam rooster, a Rhode Island Red Rooster, and 44 hens. Among them are 1 Turkin, Barred Plymouth Rocks,
New Hampshire Reds, Bantams, Rhode Island Reds, Ameraucana's, Leghorn's, and Buff Orpington's.
I found out about backyard.com from just googling questions I had about chickens.
Thus, I like riding motorcycles in my spare time. I am a college student currently working on my bachelors.
