Hi! I'm new to this board and to chickens in general. My husband went out deer hunting the weekend before Christmas and came home with a rooster. It simply appeared on the hood of his truck in the middle of 750 acres of woods. Thus began my life with chickens. After some work converting an old goat house to a coop and adding a run, my neighbor graciously gave us four hens to keep the rooster company. Best I can tell, the roo is a Speckled Sussex, one hen is a young white leghorn, two hens are black sex links, and another young black hen is probably a mix. I was reluctant to keep the rooster at first, but this is turning in to a great hobby for me and I'm really having fun! I look forward to gaining knowledge and support from this group!
