    Hi guys, we have lived in Florida for 2 years, moved from Michigan. We have an acre and a half, and finally got our first chickens. When we bought them they were marked "pullets" and said they were female which is what we wanted. Being unexperienced we had no idea pullett just meant young hen.I have since learned that they are Sex Linx, which is great!!! Well, they are now 5 weeks old, and doing great, but we realized that we really should have a rooster. So, this week I bought 4 Barred Rocks, and 2 Bantams. The Bantams are just for loving, the Barred to see if we get a Rooster. We just love animals, want eggs, and want to give our chickens the best life that they can have. Finding this site was a total happy day!!! Cant wait to keep learning, and making my chickens lives better!! :)
