    Just wanted to say hello and to thank everyone for posting all this great info on here!!! I have and am learning a ton! I got my first 6 chickens a little over a year ago.....3 older Red Star and 3 about to lay Barred Rocks. Then came home from the feed store with 2 Black Star chicks, 2 RIR chicks and a ??? chick one day. Then a Barred Rock hen went broody and I got two Red Star/RIR pullets and 2 BR/RIR roos out of that. .....and I'm about to order a few more and come home from the feed store again with a few....[​IMG].

    Thanks again!


    ....a few pics I grabbed that I had handy....not in any order.

    Hi and :welcome

    Wow, that's a lot of chickens. They look lovely. I love the pictures of your chicks... but then again I love most pictures of chicks. :lol: I see you give your birds watermelon too, seems to be a good way of getting them through the summer :p

    Thanks! Being able to come home with chicks that one day was great and a long time coming...[​IMG] .....then having that hen hatch out those and watch her raise them was one of the neatest things I've experienced....[​IMG]. I like looking at pics of chicks too....hard not to smile! My girls absolutey love watermelon!...then followed by green beans.
