Hello everyone! I am a new chicken flock owner who just started with six chickens a month ago. I did my research and made up a list of what kind of chickens I wanted to start with, then I went through the PennySaver and the Free Trader in search of those types of chickens and found that there was an ad for some Rhode Island Reds. The person selling them had 11, but I only wanted to start with six. I've had the six now for about four weeks, and would love to get some more. They are such wonderful ladies, and all I have to do is open the back door of the house and they come running, along with my seven dwarf goats. I met a fellow chicken person today who mentioned that she uses this site, and here I am. She is also hooking me up with some of the olive egg layers and I can't wait! I understand this is an excellent site for information sharing and I'm looking forward to participating. Thank you!
