    I'm very happy to finally be a chicken owner! Recently moved to the country in Illinois and have started raising 4 cornish X (who will soon be ready for the cook pot) 2 Rhode Island Reds and 2 easter eggers which are only 1 wk old. I have tons of questions but first just wanted to say hi there.
