Well, I decided to go ahead an join this time. I have had chickens since 2008 and found BYC being very helpful back then to get us started. We started with 3 red producers in a chicken tractor that I made all out of "Obtanium". I built a real hen house a few years ago on skids so it would not be a permanent building. I now have 10 hens which consist of 3 Delawares, 2 Buff Orpingtons, and 5 Barred Rocks. They are still young birds and will not begin to lay till close to Christmas. I will be posting some pics of them, the hen house, and their enclosure. We have named the egg farm after our newest granddaughter Abigail Grace. I cannot wait till they start laying so that I can bless my great neighbors again as I always have. Hope my experiences will be able to aid those here who are just getting a start.
