I've ordered 5 chicks. I know it's not much. I had 5 Golden Comets, and have lost 3 in the last two years to illness. My last two made it through the winter so I've decided to add to the flock, and barred rocks were highly recommended to me by several people. I'll be getting them in May. Eventually I'll add them to the coop with the two older hens (I hope). They are about 4 years old now. I'm hoping that they can integrate when the time comes!!! Just wanted to share my excitement!
