Hello! We are new to chickens. I was surprised and given 20 new chicks on Mother's Day. What an awesome present! I have been wanting to get chickens for years but had to wait until we moved somewhere they were allowed. We have 10 Barred Rocks and 10 Rhode Island Reds, they are about 3 weeks old now. They were just a few days old when we brought them home. "Chicken TV" is great! I've noticed the Rhode Island Reds are growing faster and seem to have more feathers than the Barred Rocks. I'm looking forward to reading and learning more about my feathered friends.
