    My daughter and I started a home school project last year to build a coop and chicken run. The more time I spent reading (or lurking) the more I became invloved with the flock. I had chickens as a child but it had been a long time!! We currently have 6 Barred Rock Hens, 3 - 5 week old black Marans, 3 - 7 day old black Marans, 1 - 7 day old Copper Marans and one unknown rooster, I will posting his picture so hopefully someone can identify the Roo otherwise known as Houdini. We just completed our first hatch with some Ebay eggs and it turned out okay but there is lots of room for improvement.

    I'm glad to see that there are many on the forum near us. We are in Plant City. Hope to meet some of you at a swap sometime.

    Welcome! I'm in Jacksonville. You will enjoy BYC, there is so much information and people are very helpful when you have questions.
    Are you going to the Lake City Show? The Tampa show? You can find all the swaps and shows listed for Fl under the "CHICKENSTOCK SHOWS AND SWAPS" heading. Maybe there will be one near you.

    Welcome! We're almost neighbors. I'm in Lithia and got into chickens along with my daughter as well. She ended up not as interested as I was
