Hello friends! My name is David and I have been raising chickens as a hobby for 30 years, mostly RIRs and Buffs. The last two years I have changed over to Black Copper Marans. I currently have 12 hens and 1 Roo. I will be placing 18 eggs in the incubator this weekend. If they all hatch I guess i'll be expanding my pens, lol. Thanks for having me on this site. Look forward to learning much more from BackYardChickens.com.
