    Just ordered my first eleven chickens today. I've been hanging around this site and decided to join.

    Welcome to BYC neighbor, I live in Forsyth GA and I have just started raising chickens this year. I love it more than I thought I would. I have one rooster and seven chickens. I will expand my little farm this spring to include a couple of guineas and peacocks. I hope to hatch a few chicks too. I wish you good luck. I bought this batch of chicks at the Bolingbroke feed and seed store.

    I have seven different types of chickens and one rooster. I call them by names that I picked for them but I don't know their actual breed. One is a brown bird with tuffs of hair on her cheeks. We call her cookie. She lays eggs that resemble Easter eggs. So far she has laid 4 greenish blue eggs. What type is she?

    My chicks will be ready on 12/15. I bought them from the Georgia Mad Hatcher down in Perry. I've also started laying in garden beds. I've been wanting to do this for years, but only recently got the space.
