I joined a few months ago, but have not introduced myself. I'm Ally! I live in MD with two dogs, four cats, a bearded dragon, and five chickens. Oh, and my husband, Joe. I have two Red Stars, two RIRs, and a Wyndotte mix of sorts adopted chicken. Things have been going well with them, i got them in May. Laying well, no problems so far *knocks on wood*. And I guess I placed my coop in just the right spot, where it gets daylight alllllll day, because I am still getting no less than four eggs a day, in December. Or maybe its because its their first year? I havent looked that one up yet. Does anyone know how much these breeds are supposed to weigh? I really enjoy having chickens. I love getting the eggs and just watching them peck around the yard. I look foward to reading more articles and posting more.
