Hello All! I am brand new to chicken raising and I have 23 black stars, and two unknowns that are golden color. Strangely enough, all of the black chickens beat up and hen peck the gold ones to pieces even at the tiny chicken age! Disparing. Anyways, I'm building the coop currently and have made great progress. I'm about to build the feeder box and will go from there. Waterer is complete.
I currently live in El Paso, TX and the chix seem to be doing fine.
