Hello, I probably should have signed up a long time ago! We have 14 chickens (6 Barred Rocks, 6 Rhode Island Reds and two Easter Eggers). We got them back in March and have been having fun ever since. I call them our therapy chickens since it is therapeutic for us to watch them roam our backyard. We have had health issues for the past 3 years so it is nice to have them! They started laying eggs about two weeks ago and we are enjoying fresh eggs with nice orange yokes. I never thought I could enjoy having chickens so much! When we have any questions, we come to Backyardchickens.com and find the answers. We are thankful for this website!
