Hi all, I thought Id joined years ago, but Im not in the database, so I (re?) joined. We had barnyard cross chickens when we lived in TN, and they were sweet and 2 were really good layers. We are back in Ohio, have a really awesome coop built by my boss' husband, and had some dud RIR pullets from a swap meet last year. Didnt get 1 egg from them. Soon I will get the coop cleaned out, and we are close to Mt. Healthy Hatchery in Cincinnati, OH- still trying to decide on breeds but will start from hatch this year! Hoping to also get ahold of a few Cotournix as they mature faster.
