Hi! My name is Kezia and I'm new to chickens and to BYC. So I'll be on here a lot looking up new information. Last year my dad and I got 3 white mystery chickens and 3 Golden Comets. I kept them till they were big enough to not get swept away by a hawk, now they stay at my dads. This year we got 3 Black Sexlinks, 3 Barred Rocks and 1 Rhode Island Red. I'm keeping four this year, the rest go join the others at my dad's. After my research of chicken breeds, I think the Barred Rock and Rhode Island Red will be my best bet for my first chickens. I've already had several questions answered on this forum, and I have sooo many more!!
